## Aim

Build on the knowledge in design of experiments in order to be able to plan and perform more complicated experiments, as well as analyse data in several dimensions.

## Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

• Be able to explain and use basic methods in factorial design.
• Be able to explain and use basic methods in cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, principal components, and partial least squares.
• Be able to evaluate and discuss results obtained using multivariate statistical methods.

Competences and skills
For a passing grade the student must

• Plan a factorial design experiment.
• Suggest which multivariate statistical methods should be used on a given problem.
• Analyse multi-dimensional data using computer software and critically assess the result.
• Report the solutions of multivariate statistical problems in written reports and orally at seminars.
• Independently analyse and discuss a given problem at advanced level using multivariate statistical methods and design strategies.

Judgement and approach
For a passing grade the student must

## Contents

Complete and reduced factorial designs. Response surface analysis. Cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, principal component analysis (PCA), and partial least squares (PLS).

## Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U, 3, 4, 5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: Written project reports as well as compulsory and active participation in the seminars.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
