Prerequisites Probability and Statistics of undergraduate level.
Outline This course will include lectures and drills using the R language regarding various techniques of data analysis. It will cover the basic theory, standard techniques and advanced methods developed recently. The course aims to prepare the attendee for interpretation, analysis and prediction using various data encountered in research.
