About this Event

Do you know the basics of using R, but don’t know all the details about creating custom plots? Do you want to showcase your creativity on assignments and in your research by creating large data visualizations? Join this Engineering Grad Studio to kickstart your next project with R.From environmental science to electrical engineering, students from countless disciplines will likely use R at some point in order to easily crunch numbers and visualize data. But even after learning the basics of R, it’s easy to be intimated by the more advanced options. In this Grad Studio, we will cover:

  • The powerful and flexible R package for data visualization, ggplot2.
  • How to develop beautiful custom visualizations that describe your data with flair.

After this studio, you will be able to hit the ground running with your next data-driven project! This is the second of a 2-part series on making data plots in R. If you have limited or no experience in R, we encourage you to watch the recording of the first part in this series here before attending.
