Experimental Design and Statistics for Engineers

This module covers fundamental principles of experimental design and statistics, and the practical implementation of a comprehensive range of statistical analyses in Python. The module is designed primarily to cater for biomedical engineering students who require a breadth of knowledge in this domain, but the principles and skills generalise to any area of science and engineering.

Most modules require a 2.2 degree in a related discipline or equivalent professional experience. Should you have any queries regarding your eligibility, please contact us at info@advancecentre.ie


On successful completion of this module alearner will:

1. Know how to engage in statistical thinking and rigorous scientific inquiry
2. Understand the basic mathematics underlying modern statistical analysis
3. Have proficiency in conducting data analyses using Python, the dominant and fastest-growing programming language used in the engineering and data science industries
4. Be able to carry out a range of statistical analyses including ANOVA, single- and multi-variable regression, logistic regression, repeated-measures and nonparametric tests (including permutation tests), linear mixed-effect models, and basic Bayesian statistics.
5. Understand basic principles of model selection and the relationship between statistical and mechanistic modeling
6. Understand how to design valid, effective, and statistically powered experiments for problems ranging from basic scientific investigations of biological processes to process validation in manufacturing
