IIT Delhi is conducting a TEQIP-III Sponsored Short-Term Course on Applications of Probability and Statistics in Civil Engineering at the IIT Delhi Sonipat, Haryana Campus on July 13-15, 2018.

The aim of the course is to introduce the relevance of probability and statistics in a wide range of academic and industrial problems relevant to civil engineering applications. This will be achieved through lectures and hands-on sessions, which will include the basics of data analysis using open source packages.

Learning Outcomes
  • Appreciate the role of probability in Civil Engineering
  • Make appropriate decisions using statistical inference
  • Use open source statistical tool to analyse probabilistic data
  • Revisit civil engineering design problems from a probabilistic perspective
  • Use statistical data analysis in relevant research problems
Course Contents

Data reduction, Basics of probability theory –random events, Joint random variables, Common probability distributions in civil engineering –discrete and continuous, Hypothesis testing, Belief updation in civil engineering problem using Bayesian theory, Concept of reliability, Applications of probability, statistics, & reliability in civil engineering problems through examples, Hands-on sessions on data analysis using R, a commonly used open source package.

Target Audience

The course is designed for faculty members in TEQIP-III institutes under IIT Delhi zone. Selection of 30 candidates will be done on a first-come, first-served basis after shortlisting candidates based on their background and interest in the subject.


Boarding and lodging will be arranged for the selected candidates, as per TEQIP-III norms, in Sonipat campus on twin-sharing basis. All rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with basic amenities.
