**Catalog Description:** This course covers the role of statistics in engineering. It is designed to be a dense one-term introduction to probability, inferential statistics, experiments, hypothesis testing and estimation, Topics include sample spaces and events, conditional probability and independence. Discrete and continuous random variables, their probability distributions, expected value and distribution parameters. Discrete probability distribution functions (Binomial, geometric, negative binomial, Poisson distributions). Continuous probability distributions (uniform, normal, exponential, and gamma distributions). Estimation and hypothesis testing of a single sample (Random sampling, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, confidence intervals)
