ECE 313 - Lecture 1 © 2000 Dilip V. Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 4 of 30 How is ECE 313 different? ECE 313 is a course on Mathematical probability theory Applications to the statistical problems of decision-making under uncertainty estimation of parameters Applications to problems in engineering IE 230 and Stat 310 primarily teach statistical methods
ECE 313 - Lecture 1 © 2000 Dilip V. Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 5 of 30 How does ECE 313 compare? The coverage of probability is more complete and in more depth in ECE 313 than in IE 230 or Stat 310 The coverage of statistics in ECE 313 is idiosyncratic and incomplete compared to the broad coverage in IE 230 or Stat 310 ECE 313 primarily covers some statistical techniques applicable to communications and radar systems
