Hi, I'm currently taking classes to catch me up to speed to do an EE masters program (did my undergrad in something unrelated, but already accepted to the MS EE) and I have a lot of freedom in choosing what courses I feel that I'll need to prepare myself. Is a course in probability something that is considered essential or should I pass on the course and save the time/money if I'm not required to take it? This is the syllabus for the course: http://www.bu.edu/ece/files/2014/10/ec381-syllabus.pdf [Broken] I'm looking at doing the EE MS in more hardware & solid state related areas, but would still like to take one or two courses on signal processing. Is there anything to an ECE probability course that would be expected knowledge in graduate courses? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
