Course description

Given the constant increase in data volumes and complexity, data analysis is becoming more crucial. Handling large datasets, statistical modeling, visualization, and pattern recognition with machine learning are essential skills. Ethical and legal questions also play a significant role. Experts are urgently needed for developments in intelligent vehicles, smart homes, artificial intelligence, and social media. The course aims to equip graduates to support data-driven decisions comprehensively. It targets Bachelor graduates interested in statistics and information technology who want to deepen their knowledge. Students receive interdisciplinary training in classic statistical methods, programming, database systems, and machine learning. This foundational framework is enhanced by practical events in statistical consulting and business analytics, research-related events like a research colloquium, and discussions on ethical, legal, and social impacts. The course offers students the chance to deepen their understanding of statistics and information technology at a high level. Due to the program's strong interdisciplinarity and various entry options, it is available in two content-adapted variants.
