Course Description

The objective of the course is that the student shall understand and be aware of the principles and basis
of methods of engineering analysis and assessments, statistics, probability theory, reliability analysis,
numerical methods, risk analysis, optimization and digital sign processing. It also serves as the basis
of the subsequent MSc subjects on modelling, design and programming.
