Objectives and Outcomes

On completion of the course students will be able to:  solve linear systems of equations; analyze random processes; perform local optimization and hypothesis testing; interpolate and fit discrete data sequences. Students will solve problems analytically and computationally in an active learning, tutorial environment. The course will include a design project. 

Relevance to the Program

The topics of the course will be presented through problems, models and applications relevant to the Mechanical Engineering Program.
