The course offerings of the Chair of Statistics and Data Analytics include methods in statistics at the undergraduate, master's, and graduate levels. Emphasis is placed on linking knowledge of statistical methods with computational skills for applying and interpreting this knowledge.
Our research focuses on the development and application of flexible regression methods. Our work covers basic research as well as applied statistics. We are continuously working on interdisciplinary practical projects together with our scientific, business, and societal partners.

For the planning and orientation of our students, the Chair of Statistics and Data Analytics and the Computational Statistics and Mathematics teaching unit offer a joint overview of the planned courses for the period winter semester 2022/23 to summer semester 2024.
Several (related) topics are currently available for Master's or Bachelor's theses (and "Zulassungsarbeiten"):
- Time series forecasts (and their averages) over multiple horizons and information sets (prerequisite is a bachelor level knowledge of time series analysis/stochastic processes)
- Forecast evaluation (prerequisite is a bachelor level knowledge of time series analysis/stochastic processes)
- Deal curve models in marketing research (prerequisite is a basic knowledge in regression analysis and marketing research)
- Air quality monitoring and prediction (prerequisite is a bachelor level knowledge of time series analysis/stochastic processes)
- Quantile regression and utility (prerequisite is a basic knowledge in regression analysis and expected utility)
- Regression smoothing (prerequisite is a basic knowledge in regression analysis)
- Ridge functions in statistics (prerequisite is a basic knowledge of analysis and mathematical statistics)
- Central limit theory for M-estimators (prerequisite is a basic knowledge of probability theory and mathematical statistics)
Work can be applied, computational, theoretical. Connected topics are available. For further information, please contact Prof. Haupt.
In talking to the Digital Research Magazine of the University of Passau, he gives insights into how he aims to develop innovative tools that can shed light on the determinants and forecast patterns of migration.
We are happy with Julian Dietlmeier about the award for his outstanding thesis of the "Verein der Freunde und Förderer der Wirtschaftswissenschaften in Passau e.V".
His thesis is entitled:
Evaluation of the Quantilogram as a metric for investigating Quantile Regression residuals.
Congratulations from all of us!
We are very happy with Dr. Svenia Elena Behm about the award for her outstanding dissertation thesis entitled:
Four essays on statistical modelling of environmental data
Within the Dies Academicus on Friday, 11/11/2022, Dr. Behm was honoured with the Science Award of the University of Passau, donated by SPARDA-BANK OSTBAYERN EG.
We congratulate her very wholeheartedly!
