International Research Workshop

SPSS Postgraduate Research Program - Basics to Advanced Level

Cases from Thesis/Research Papers/Reports


Welcome to the RCTD's Postgraduate Research (PGR) Services


Research Center for Training & Development (RCTD) offers a wide range of training and development opportunities for postgraduate researchers. In order to enhance statistical and analytical skills of postgraduate researchers, RCTD is organizing an International Research Workshop “SPSS Postgraduate Research Program” on 15-16 November, 2013 through HD Video Conferencing.


The workshop is designed to understand the key concepts and methods of statistical analysis required during the conduct of research for thesis/paper or research projects.  The workshop will focus more on understanding of key concepts and statistical thinking, and less on formulas and calculations, which can now be done on Statistical Package (SPSS). The participants will be provided with their relevant discipline data sets and they will perform the tests/exercises along with the international resource persons. The participant can also use his/her own datasets during the workshop and can get guidance/consultation for their own research.


The researchers from Universities, Research Institutes, R&D Organizations and Social Sector Organizations can participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected with internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us through email ( or Call us (00971528047514, 00923224309974, 001 905 487 1733).


Note: The university/institute will pay the participation fee after the one week of the workshop for the convenience of processing and paying the invoice. RCTD will send the certificates of participation and DVD of workshop recordings for 40 participants after the workshop through courier service.
