Do you want to take your data analysis skills to the next level?

The R statistical computing environment has become a standard for scientific data analysis, visualization and reproducible research.

At the HIE, we offer an introductory course to help you climb the steep learning curve.

This five-day course is aimed at postgraduate students and staff, and is for newcomers to R, as well as intermediate users.

The course covers

  • Basics of R (data entry, manipulation, tabulation, special data types)
  • Visualisation (basic and advanced plotting of data)
  • Statistical analyses (basic statistics, linear models)
  • Project management (workflow and organization, principles of reproducible research).

The course will consist of short lectures with ample time for hands-on exercises.

The exercises are set up with different levels: more advanced students can work on more difficult problems.

We assume that you have completed some introductory statistics course at university level, but no previous programming experience is required.
