Statistical Consulting

Since February 2018 the Group for Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics has been offering statistical consulting. All students and staff members of the EI, IA, MN and WM departments can use this service free of charge, provided they are engaged in research at the TU Ilmenau. We recommend to start this process in the early stages of a project. 


Our offered services include, but are not limited to:

  • help with designing a study and choice of statistical models
  • support with analysis of data
  • help formulating the statistical parts of your research proposal
  • workshops on relevant statistical topics

No tutoring in statistics

This service is meant only for research projects. There is no tutoring for students in probability theory and statistics.


The consultations will be held after you apply for an appointment. They will be held by M.Sc. Stefan Heyder in C335 in the Curie building. 


  • Consultations are free of charge for students and staff members of TU Ilmenau. The services are only provided for research projects of TU Ilmenau.
  • After you submit your application you should formulate your problem precisely along with your planned evaluation strategy. You are encouraged to bring supplementary literature to the first meeting. Please allow for up to one hour for the first meeting. 
  • After your consultation, you are required to inform your project leader of your use of our service. We also require a short evaluation to ensure the ongoing quality of our services.
  • If after the first meeting there are still open questions, another meeting may be scheduled.

Workshops on statistics

We welcome recommendations for topics that could be used for a short course in applied statistics. Should you have a relevant topic, please contact us (
