Introduction to Engineering Data Analytics with R



Due to the current situation, the lecture and exercise will be held online

Short title: IDA

Big Data is currently one of the most important topics in science and research. The preparation, processing and analysis of large and inhomogeneous amounts of data from diverse data sources is playing an increasingly important role in the everyday life of engineers. The ability to filter and process these gigantic amounts of data, to carry out the required analyses and to document the findings accordingly are the basic prerequisites for a successful engineer. In the lecture "Introduction to Engineering Data Analytics with R", the data analysis process from data import to finished documentation is performed by using the R programming language  in the RStudio development environment.

Main Topics

The course ist structured in:

VL01 - Introduction to Quality Data & Engineering with R

VL02 - Importing Data I

VL03 - Importing Data II

VL04 - Tidy Data

VL05 - Transform Data

VL06 - Joining Data

VL07 - Programing in R

VL08 - Visualize Data with ggplot2

VL09 - Visualize Data with Plotly

VL10 - Visualize Data with Shiny

VL11 - Model Data I 

VL12 - Model Data II / Machine Learning

VL13 - Shiny Advanced

VL14 - Combine Shiny with HTML & CSS & Java Script

VL15 - Dashboard & Casestudy

All slides from the lectures and examples are accessible through the ISIS2-Plattform.

The programming language R will be practiced in online tutorials provided by DataCamp. The students will get free access to the courdes on DataCamp. For more Information feel free to visit: DataCamp

Main Focus

After completing the course, participants will be able to independently perform data analyses in the R programming language in the RStudio development environment using statistical methods, interpret the results and document them. Furthermore, the students are able to prepare the results of their projects and to present and defend them under practical conditions.


The course consists of 2 parts: The weekly lecture and the online tutorials.

Restriction of participation: The course capacity is limited to 300 students.
