Curricular information is subject to change.

R is a free, open-source programming language and software environment designed for data analysis, graphics, and statistical computing. It is continually updated by contributors from all over the world who add new packages that implement a range of statistical and machine learning techniques. R is widely used by academic researchers and businesses globally.
This module provides an introduction to R, covering essential topics such as manipulating vectors, matrices, arrays, and lists, programming constructs, flow control, graphical and visualisation methods, working with large datasets, basic data analysis and statistical methods, as well as document and report creation.

###### Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the course, students should have attained an intermediate-level knowledge of R. They should be able to use R to:
- Manipulate data sets of any size and structure.
- Program and implement efficient algorithms.
- Create professional quality graphical summaries of data.
- Perform statistical analyses.
- Produce data analysis documents.
