Probability Theory


Learning Outcomes

This course attempts to enhance the knowledge gained in the course Probability Theory explain the fundamental concepts and to provide an appropriate mathematical background that enables the students to study the fields of computers and computers networks. The course directly supports most of the curriculum subjects and lessons: Note that during the lesson, specific examples of application are discussed in some of the above curricular subjects such as applications in telecommunication systems, cryptography, digital services such as e- learning, e-health using new technologies with the help of programs such as Matlab, Octave, SPSS, R. After successfully attending this course, students are expected to have acquired the basic ones that are necessary in Information Technology. In conclusion, the students through the course process develop mathematical thinking and analyze, adapt their acquired knowledge to apply them to a variety of subjects in the field of study or the field of study, as well as to acquire new knowledge. In addition, they learn to solve complex or new problems in their scientific field of study by developing integrated as well as creative or innovative solutions and approaches while supporting their solutions and views in a methodical and scientific way. Finally, they learn to analyze and critically and responsibly choose ideas and information about those elements that concern them.
