Previous knowledge expected


Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

After successful completion of the course, the students know principles of specific applications of computer systems in food and biotechnology with focus on Quality and production control. They are able to specify, qualify computerized systems and to draft concepts for the validation of computerized systems. They know about functionality and possibilities of spreadsheets and statistic programmes. They are able to use standard office programes and statistic software to visualize data, to carry out multiple comparisons and variance component analysis as well as experimental designs. They could improve their ability to solve specific problems individually or in teamwork.
