The course provides an in-depth introduction to probability, statistical analysis, and decision theory using civil engineering applications. Examples are drawn from problems in structural design and reliability, transportation, urban, and environmental systems, water resources, and engineering economics.
Familiarizes students with the application of statistical quality problem-solving methodologies used to characterize, leverage, and reduce process variability. This course emphasizes the application of sampling methodologies, sample size determination, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, correlation, regression, measurement systems analysis, design and analysis of saturated experimental designs, design and analysis response surface experimental designs, and statistical process control. This course is dual-listed with IE 408.
