STAT 430 will introduce modern techniques of computational statistics for practical analysis of data. The course will utilize the SAS software system, which is widely used both in statistical applications and in corporate data management applications. Data analysis and interpretation will be emphasized, rather than statistical theory. At every point in the course real world data sets will be used to illustrate statistical principles.
For undergraduates in mathematics or computer science seeking statistical employment after graduation, SAS is a valuable job credential. For graduate students in fields which use statistics heavily, such as agriculture, life science, education, engineering or social science, SAS is a powerful aid to research. Graduate students who have successfully taken an applied statistics course in their own department should have no difficulty with STAT 430.
