Course Overview

The course is held within the scope of the joint European Masters programme TRIBOS.


  • ​To introduce the concepts of variability, description, characterisation and interpretation of random data.
  • To acquaint the students with the concept of probability and the basic statistical methods for the description and characterisation of random data.
  • To equip the students with the basic knowledge for the analysis, description, characterisation and interpretation of experimental data using the Matlab environment.
  • The ability to analyse, characterise and interpret variable random data.
  • The ability to conduct linear analysis and characterise sensor signals using the methods of technical statistics for the description, analysis, characterisation, design and planning of products, technical systems and processes.
