Course abstract
Students are familiar with the formulation of engineering research objectives and targets. Students acquire knowledge of research techniques and methods, pair and multiple regressions, the regression equation finding with the help of a computer program, design of pair and multi-factorial experiments, factors' selection principles in these experiments, the number of experiments and the number of repetitions in each experiment. Students adopt the experiment planning and realization, as well as the evaluation and the interpretation of results.
Learning outcomes and their assessment
