Before choosing courseFMG3904 Experimental Designs 6.0 creditsAdministrate About course

This course provides an overview of the experimental design methods. Initially, we review elementary statistics and statistical methods, then a number of variations of experimental design are treated. The final part deals with statistical analysis of data from different experiments. The course material consists of "Statistical Design and Analysis of Experiments: With Applications to Engineering and Science", Second Edition, by Robert L. Mason, Richard F. Gunst, James L. Hess. The course is given as a seminar series where participating PhD students (max 8 students) lectures assigned chapters. Also, it is expected that they  present an experimental design applied to their own research. The software Modde from Umetrics is used in the form of an institution's license, and a guest lecture by Umetrics personal is sought. The course is held in Swedish or English, depending on the participants' language preferences.
