Course description and aims

Through lectures and exercises, this course is designed to teach methods of statistical analysis, estimation and testing that are required for processing and understanding the data obtained by experiments, measurements and simulations.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will have acquired fundamental knowledge on statistics and data analysis, which includes methods for estimating probability density distribution, testing of statistical hypotheses, correlation analysis, regression analysis, multivariate analysis and time series analysis.


Probability, Statistics, Data

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Each lecture will include both teaching content and exercises, and exercises will be applied to confirm understanding of the lecture content. Structure will be: Review of previous lecture: 10 minutes; lecture: 60 minutes; exercise: 20 minutes.
