Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Data Analysis & Statistics
Course Code CSE-883
Credit Hours 3-0
Course Objectives This is an introductory course for students in CSE. In this course the students will learn the principles and methods of statistical analysis, but will also put them into practice using a range of real-world data sets. The objective is to provide a basic understanding of data analysis using statistics and to use computational tools on problems of applied nature.
