Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This course aims to give students a sound understanding of experimental design, both theoretical and practical. The course will explore the method of analysis of variance and show how it is structurally linked to particular types of design. The combinatoric properties of designs will be explored, and the impact of computers on classical design considered. Examples from many different application areas will be given throughout.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the course students will be able to:Describe the basic principles behind designed experiments; Construct the design matrix for simple experiments and estimate their parameters; Perform an analysis of variance on standard experimental designs; Distinguish between different designs and recognise their efficiency / utility; Show the relationship between designing experiments and analysing the resulting data; Perform diagnostic tests on the results from a designed experiment; Take a practical design problem and determine an optimal or robust solution.

Timetabled teaching activities

30 one-hour lectures.
