UTPA STEM/CBI Courses/Numerical Methods and Statistics
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This course offers students an in-depth exposure to the use of numerical methods and programming to solve engineering problems in addition to teaching them the basics of probability theory and statistics in Engineering.
It covers the following topics: basic programming (including data structures, if-then-else statements, loops, etc.), numerical solutions to linear and nonlinear equations, systems of linear equations, optimization, curve fitting, numerical calculus, probability theory, and statistics. The course content assumes only an introductory previous exposure to engineering concepts and focuses on exposing students to the programming skills commonly used in later engineering courses to solve problems numerically.
