In the scope of this corporate course we embrace the basic overview into the R software and programming environment. Suitable for any field using statistical computing, this 20-hour course allows the students to embark on a journey highlighting the main aspects of R programming in an intuitive yet practice-oriented manner.

Some Background into R

With over 2 million users worldwide, R is rapidly becoming the go-to programming language in statistics and data science. Every year, the number of R users grows by 40% which is directly reflected in the number of organizations that are using it in their day-to-day activities. The rise of R is pretty prominent in the Armenian market, too. An open-source software environment for statistical computing at core, R is developed by a large international community of scientists and programmers and is the cornerstone that lays at the forefront of new developments in statistical computing.

Across a variety of fields and domains, understanding the basics of R and its functionality is of great help to students and professionals alike. Our course allows to leverage the power of R in day-do-day work and studies.
