Time Series

In the winter term we’ll offer the lecture “Time Series” (6 ECTS).


The learning goal for the course is to have an understanding of time series analysis techniques and their practical applications, ranging from classical time series analysis to deep learning. Specifically, at the end of the course you should possess the following key knowledge and skills:

  1. Strong foundation in classical time series analysis
  2. Proficiency in model selection and evaluation
  3. Ability to conduct advanced time series modelling and forecasting
  4. Knowledge of practical application of time series analysis (including knowledge of software and tools)


Credits: 6 ECTS
