Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

tudents demonstrate the knowledge of graphical and computational methods for evaluating raw materials and evaluating the efficiency of technological operations, including the application of basic statistical methods. They are able to apply basic procedures of mathematical statistics to solve practical problems of processing raw materials.

Teaching methods



Students are acquainted with the issue of evaluation of properties of mineral resources and waste and evaluation of treatment plants technologies. The course also deals with the application of basic probabilistic a statistical methods in the area of raw material processing and planning and evaluation of experimental work. Students are able to evaluate and predict the results of technological processes and apply basic statistical methods in this area.
