Course detail

Analysis of Engineering Experiment

FSI-TAIAcad. year: 2019/2020

The course is concerned with the selected parts of mathematical statistics for stochastic modeling of the engineering experiments: analysis of variance (ANOVA), regression models, nonparametric methods, multivariate methods, and probability distributions estimation. Computations are carried out using the software as follows: Statistica, Minitab, and QCExpert.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students acquire needed knowledge from the mathematical statistics, which will enable them to evaluate and develop stochastic models of technical phenomena and processes based on these methods and realize them on PC.


Descriptive statistics, probability, random variable, random vector, random sample, parameters estimation, hypotheses testing, and regression analysis.
