In the specific scientific field they will be able to form definitions of research problems and find optimal solutions. They will be capable to link together the existing methods, develop new methods with critical approach and clearly defined criteria based on statistical theory. They will be able to critically assess research results and capable to transferring new knowledge into practice. Due to distinct international orientation of the programme, they will acquire the ability to communicate in an international scientific environment.
