## 21201511 - I.T.: STATISTICAL ANALYSIS LABORATORY

The course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of statistical analysis software tools such as Matlab. The final objective of the course is to ensure that students, at the end of the teaching activity, are able to perform some of the main statistical applications and, in the case of applications not developed within the course, to being able to learn independently the knowledge necessary for the development of such applications.
