Aims and Objectives of the Department
The primary purpose of the department of econometrics is to train "Econometrist/Econometrician with sufficient knowledge about econometrics and quantitative economics. Nowadays, it is not possible to interpret any economic event without using econometrics and statistics and to make predictions, and it is not believable. For this reason, the economist definitely needs an econometrist or a statistician, or he needs to learn econometrics or statistics. From this perspective, it is possible to define econometrist as an engineer of economics.
The main goal of the department is to provide intellectual depth by teaching students to ask questions, to think critically, to develop a worldview that is open to multi-faceted and alternative perspectives, and to work as a team. For this purpose, the department of econometrics provides a training and research formation based on multidimensional, critical, theoretical, and methodological pluralism, open to differences and based on interdisciplinary knowledge.
