Quality and Reliability

Students interested in pursuing this track are required to take a collection of 6 common courses.

In addition, they must complete a final report, which provides a critical analysis of a topic that is
appropriate to the plan of study and is subject to approval by the advisory committee.
It is expected that students will spend about 1/3 effort spent for a regular 3 unit course for the final report.

Required Courses:
18 units
Engineering Mgmt:3   units
Final Report:1   unit
Electives:
9   units
TOTAL: 
31  units
  

Prerequisite: Calculus-based introductory probability and statistics course, such as: UA: SIE 305 or SIE 500a

All students are required to complete a “Final Paper” (1 unit).
This paper must be appropriate to the student’s plan of study, and is subject to the approval of the student’s advisory committee.

Additional coursework will be decided between the student and a faculty advisor.
Students are required to complete their Plan of Study by the end of their second semester. 
You will meet with the graduate advisor and faculty advisor to complete this process.
