Course Description

  • ISE7300 Stochastic Processes
    This course covers basic stochastic models that are commonly used in engineering and economic applications. Topics include discrete-time Markov chains, Poisson processes, continuous-time Markov chains, and basic queueing theory. Students will gain experience and competence with probabilistic modeling using conditional probabilities, expectations, and limiting theorems.

  • ISE6300 Simulation for System Analytics and Decision-Making
    This course covers basic techniques in discrete-event system simulation including random numbe generation, general principles, input data modeling, and output analysis. Students will learn to build simple simulation models in practical situations using available simulation software; statistically analyze simulation outputs and estimate system performance; evaluate and compare alternative solutions; and use simulation to solve real-world design and decision making problems.
