Required Courses

  • ENGRD 2700: Basic Engineering Probability and Statistics
  • ORIE 3500: Engineering Probability and Statistics II or ECE 3100: Introduction to Probability and Random Signals

Four courses (11 credits minimum) taken from the following lista

  • ORIE 3510: Introductory Engineering Stochastic Processes I or ECE 4110: Random Signals in Communications and Signal Processing
  • ORIE 4580: Simulation Modeling and Analysis
  • ORIE 4710: Applied Linear Statistical Models
  • ORIE 4711: Experimental Design
  • ORIE 4712: Regression
