Course
Description
The course is a basic core course in Electrical Engineering which shall build necessary
background for courses in the area of communication. Course will include in-depth
knowledge of Basic Probability Theory, Discrete and Continuous Random Variables,
Functions of Random Variables, Expectations, Joint Distributions, Moment generating
functions. The course directly contributes to objectivesa, d, e and f of the HEC Electrical
Engineering Curriculum.
Expected
Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will:
Students shall be able to use probability concepts and random variables as a tool to model
and solve practical problems with applications in Engineering.
The course strongly supports expected outcomes a, b, d, I and p of the HEC Electrical
Engineering Curriculum.
