Eligibility

General entry requirements for Master's level (second cycle)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Specific entry requirements

English 6 (or by other approved means with the equivalent proficiency level)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Course specific prerequisites

Students are expected to be familiar with basic statistical
inference and to have taken some course in regression and analysis
of variance, like Linear statistical models.

Aim

This course is an introduction to the area of mixed models which has become a necessary tool for treating real life situations with e.g. random effects, correlated observations and missing data. The emphasis is on longitudinal data and on how to use SAS and R to analyse mixed models.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)


  • use the mixed model framework
  • recognize common study designs and models with longitudinal data or otherwise correlated observations

  • conduct an appropriate statistical analysis of models covered in the course using standard software
