Courses offered by the Chair of Statistics and Data Analytics cover methods of statistics on Bachelor's, Master's and Graduate levels. The focus is on dovetailing knowledge on statistical methods with computational skills to apply and interpret 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.
Despite of the current difficult situation, all courses planned for the summer semester 2020 will take place, however, in a different form. You'll find all relevant details in Stud.IP.
Please observe the forums of our courses where you will regularly find up-to-date information.
Several (related) topics are currently available for Master's or Bachelor's theses:
Air quality monitoring - pollutant series and statistics for the public
Prerequisite is a basic knowledge of:
- Time series analysis/stochastic processes,
- Relevant software (R or EViews or Python....)
If you are interested, please contact Prof. Haupt.
