Short Description

This course presents the fundamentals, concepts and methods used in the analysis of data. It covers definitions, methods of computation of the various measures of data summarization. It also introduces stochastic analysis of events and the test used to assess whether a given set of data fits into some general pattern. The course will also cover advanced engineering research skills, focusing on research design, design of data collection instruments, implementation of data collection plans, and principles of research report writing and dissemination.


The aims of this course are to:

  • Provide students with a strong knowledge base for mathematical analysis of energy systems.
  • Equip students with background and fundamental knowledge behind the techniques for analyzing a vast amount of data for different scenarios with ease
  • Equip students with the skills to use the tools for handling large amounts of data Explain to students the role of research in knowledge creation
  • Instruct students on how research is conducted practically and in academic circles
