Eigenvector University 2020

September 15, 2020 - October 15, 2020

Now completely on-line!

Eigenvector Research, Inc. is pleased to announce our 15th annual Eigenvector University. EigenU 2020 consists of 7 chemometrics short courses led by the Eigenvector staff including PLS_Toolbox creator Barry M. Wise and Eigenvector co-founder Neal B. Gallagher plus our associate Rasmus Bro. Theses instructor-led, hands-on courses will be online Tuesdays and Thursdays from September 15 though October 15, 2020.

Target audience

Our Chemometrics Courses are aimed at engineers, chemists and other scientists who want to be able to analyze their own laboratory or process data, develop their own data models or develop instruments that produce analytical data. The courses are especially well suited for those with an interest in process analytical technology (PAT) in the pharmaceutical industries, metabolomics, and systems biology. The courses are also useful for those that manage staff that generate and analyze data. The courses serve individuals with a need for exploratory data analysis, development of predictive models such as analytical instrument calibrations, sample classification, soft sensor models, multivariate statistical process control, fault detection, instrument standardization and sample classification. No prior knowledge is needed to begin this series of courses, although some knowledge of basic statistics and elementary linear algebra is useful.

About the instructors

The entire Eigenvector staff will be on hand for this online version of Eigenvector University. This includes Eigenvector Research President and PLS_Toolbox creator Barry M. Wise, Vice-President and co-founder Neal B. Gallagher, Technology Principal Robert T. Roginski, Senior Data Scientist Manny Palacios, and Software Developers R. Scott KochDonal O’Sullivan and Lyle Lawrence. Eigenvector Associate Rasmus Bro from the University of Copenhagen will also join us.

How our online courses work

Our courses are delivered using WebEx online conferencing tools. The instructor(s) deliver the lectures and show how to use our software to develop chemometrics models. Student can ask questions through the WebEx chat feature. Questions are answered either directly in the chat or are passed by the moderator to the speaker. The sessions are recorded and made available to the attendees through a password protected area on our Vimeo channel. Participants have access to the recorded sessions for one year after the class.

Participants can follow along with exercises using PLS_Toolbox or Solo. Our free demo copies work just fine the courses.
