STAN48 Programming for Data Science


7,5 credits



Second cycle level course in statistics.

The course is recommended in a Master's degree in statistics. The course may also be taken as a single subject course or within other Master’s programmes at Lund University.

The course is a modern version of computational statistics education. It shifts from mainly methodological foundations toward programming skills that allow effective implementation of the methodology in one of the leading programming languages in the field of data science: such as R or Python.
