Information for Students

"It is important for all scientists and engineers to have a practical understanding of mathematics and statistics. Computer scientists and engineers rely upon this understanding, whether their specialty is research, communications, software development, security, or any other part of computing. A good understanding of statistics is essential to dealing with the theories and processes as part of their every day work."
Dr. Grove, Computer Science Professor
