Course completion:
Credit is required for admission to the final exam. During semester, student performance is evaluated upon submission of written project and written midterm exam (max. 40 points can be awarded). In total, a student must receive at least 20 points to obtain the credit. Final exam consists of written and oral part. Computer assisted written exam takes 50 minutes. To pass, student must earn at least 50% total score. Students passing the written part may proceed to the oral exam.
Course methods: Course instruction takes place in form of lectures and practical lab sessions. In lectures, students receive background in theory coupled with illustrations and examples of statistical data processing and analysis, probability and distribution theory and hypothesis testing. In labs, real numerical examples are being practiced and consultations about semester project offered to students. In the course, students work on assigned project and take part in midterm written test.
