Ahlia University has recently established a Center for Statistical Analysis (CSA) to achieve its goal of becoming Bahrain’s leading research-based university. The CSA aims to advance the research skills of students who undertake courses in research methods and modelling. In addition, the center aims to give research students and faculty members training courses that would be used in their research across all colleges and departments. The main purpose of establishing the CSA is to enhance Social Science, IT as well as Engineering research at AU by delivering training courses to train young researchers in advanced and innovative statistical research methods, providing faculty and students with proper statistical advice, and encouraging high-quality interdisciplinary research across the various departments and colleges. As a research support center, the CSA is a multidisciplinary center which primarily focuses on analyzing data and providing statistical consultations that are otherwise not provided by research supervisors.
