Number of ECTS credits


Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

Rudiments of descriptive statistics, probability theory and mathematical statistics.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

Use of the above-mentioned statistical methods for solving specific problems. Specific problems are selected in agreement with the student. Student's area of study is preferred. The solved, calculated and elaborated tasks serve to evaluate the student.

Teaching is a form of consultation.


Students will acquaint with testing statistical hypotheses and with real applications of linear regression methods in technical practice. Formation of a stochastic way of thinking for the creation of mathematical models with an emphasis on engineering disciplines.

Students acquire needed knowledge from important parts of the probability theory and 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.
