This course will mainly use Blackboard as we go along.

**Course content**
Two-sample analysis. Multiple linear regression. Model choice. Experimental
design, including two-level factorial design. Error propagation formula.
Analysis of variance. Process control. Contingency tables. Non-parametric methods. Use of
statistical computer packages for these tasks (Mainly using R, could also be Python and Minitab).

**Learning outcome**

*Knowledge*: The student has a good basic understanding of the most popular statistical models and methods that are used in science and technology. This includes testing of hypotheses, linear regression, experimental design, analysis of variance, error propagation,
process control, analysis of contingency tables and non-parametric methods.

*Skills:* The student knows how to design an experiment to study a phenomenon of interest. Further, he or she knows how to collect informative data of high quality, and subsequently to analyse the collected data using statistical software. The student knows how to present the results from the statistical analyses to colleagues within his or her field of study, and how to use the results of the statistical analysis to draw conclusions about the phenomenon under
study.

**Learning methods and activities:**

Lectures, exercises and projects. There is a required project on design of experiments. One must pass this project to get admitted to the exam.

Retake of examination may be given as an oral examination. The lectures may be given in English. If the course is taught in English, the exam may be given only in English. Students are free to choose Norwegian or English for written assessments.
