Postgraduate Opportunities

Design of experiments is becoming ubiquitous in engineering, science, industry and many real-world problems for studying complex phenomena and investigating the relationship between inputs affecting an experiment and its outputs. This technique involves two basic aspects, designing the experiment (data collection) and analyzing the experiment (data analysis). Designing the experiment is arguably the corner stone of this approach. The significant problem experimenters may face is the selection of optimal designs for their experiments, which reduce the experimental cost and provide more efficient information about the behavior of the phenomena under the experimentation.  Through theoretical justification, our team tries to provide efficient ways from different perspectives for constructing optimal designs for real-world experiments.
