PROBABILITY WITH ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS
Section B (Tue/Thu) - IYER
ECE 313 (also cross-listed as MATH 362) is an undergraduate course on
probability theory and statistics with applications to engineering
problems primarily chosen from the areas of communications, control,
signal processing, and computer engineering.
EE and CompE students must complete
one of the two courses
ECE 313 or Stat 410.
Credit: 3 hours.
Graduate students in the ECE Department cannot receive unit credit for ECE 313.
Prerequisite: ECE 210
About This Section
This section has separate homework and exams from the
MWF sections (C, D, E, and X). While all sections will cover the same theoretical
material, the MWF sections are the standard ECE 313, whereas this section,
which is strongly recommended for computer engineering majors, will consider
many examples from computer system performance, reliability, and network
performance analysis, and the like. Through student projects, the class will be
introduced to hands-on measurements and analysis of computer systems and
networks. Analysis of the data thus gathered will introduce students to the
whys and wherefores of real-life statistical problems in the reliability and
performance analysis of computer systems and networks, and their solution.
