Introduction to Probability

Welcome to ECEn 370!

Winter 2009

The successful engineer must deal with systems with uncertain properties, whether this task includes component selection and design, reliability, digital signal processing, weather, or stock market predictions. This course will give you basic tools to both understand and quantitatively tackle these real-world situations as well as prepare you for more advanced courses in this subject. The mathematics involved in this course is not particularly complex, but the understanding behind it will require time and thought to build the intuition necessary to be successful in this course.
