DPSM conducts API training-workshop on R and Computational Statistics
The Division of Physical Sciences and Mathematics (DPSM) conducted a Training-Workshop on R and Computational Statistics for faculty members of the division last July 10-14, 2017 at CL2-CAS Building, UPV Miagao campus.
R, a popular programming language that provides an environment for statistical computing and design, is the focus of the training-workshop.
The 5-day activity was conducted to upgrade faculty members’ knowledge on R and Computational Statistics thereby strengthening their capacity to pursue researches using techniques on computational statistics. Furthermore, the training will assist the faculty members in designing courses using R and Computational Statistics as additional electives of the Division that will make graduates of DPSM more competitive in the job market.
Dr. Erniel B. Barrios and Mr. Paolo Victor T. Redondo from the School of Statistics, UP Diliman served as resource speakers.
The Division of Physical Sciences and Mathematics, one of the academic divisions under the College of Arts and Sciences, is envisioned to be the Center of Excellence in mathematical and computational sciences in the Visayas.
