We require all our undergraduate and graduate students to develop working knowledge and skills in statistical computing such as efficient use of statistical softwares and coding statistical methods in a computer language. Our curriculum has statistical computing and computational statistics courses carefully designed for that purpose.
In order to obtain a working knowledge of programming statistical methods and using statistical softwares, each student is adviced to
- adopt at least one statistical software and/or one programming language
- use the software and/or programming language adopted for analyzing data and modeling encountered in applied courses
- use the software and/or programming language adopted for the term projects and homeworks in the courses that require modeling and data analysis
- get benefit of our computer lab in the Department of Statistics as well as the computer labs on campus which has the sophisticated statistical softwares. (for a list of available statistical/mathematical softwares on campus on the basis of computer labs go to https://cc.metu.edu.tr/332-pc-rooms-installed-software-at-pc-rooms )
