What will you learn

What is this 'Micro-Learning Course' about?

This course aims to equip learners with the basic knowledge and skills to use the basic statistical tools for measurement uncertainty estimation and perform measurement uncertainty estimation for chemical analysis   

Who is this course designed for?

This course is designed for diploma graduates and PMEs who are considering to work in analytical testing laboratories of various industries such as the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, research institutes, R&D companies and other testing sectors.   

What will you take away?

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Outline the needs for estimating uncertainty in routine measurements

  • Identify sources of uncertainty in chemical analysis

  • Explain the concepts of GUM or bottom-up approach and apply it for estimating measurement uncertainty in a chemical analysis

  • Explain the concepts of top-down approach and apply it for estimating measurement uncertainty in a chemical analysis

  • Differentiate the bottom-up approach from the top-down approach and identify the strengths and weaknesses of both approaches
