Several mathematical tools applied in the engineering discipline are discussed. Statistical methods, including construction of confidence interval and hypothesis testing, as well as regression and regression analysis, are discussed. Discrete tools are discussed; these include logic and mathematical reasoning, combinatorics, groups and finite fields. Applications of some of these tools in engineering problems are introduced. Decision Theory including Bayes Theorem, applying Bayes Theorem to form decision, utility function, expectation of utility, loss function and risk, applying regression to estimate loss.
