SAS Academic Program
|Commitment to research
SAS not only has its roots in the Academic world, but is also
committed to education and research. More than a third of our annual
revenue is reinvested in research & development.
This is why SAS will gladly investigate all requests for support
of interesting research projects.
SAS believes that it is very important to share its years of experience,
its solutions and technology with students and teachers. SAS offers teachers
and students easy access to a complete offering of software and solutions.
By doing so, SAS builds a closer relationship with universities, highschools
and research institutions, being a "business window" for them
and bridging the gap between Academics and Business.
Goals & Benefits of the SAS Academic Program
|SAS Institute's Academic roots
SAS, founded in 1976 by Dr. James H. Goodnight, was originally
developed to analyze agricultural data at North Carolina State University.
It is not surprising then that SAS always maintained its ties to
higher education and research.
Although SAS stands for much more than statistics nowadays, being
the market leader in providing a new generation of business intelligence
software and services that create true enterprise intelligence,
SAS is committed to continuous development and enhancement of new
software to support statistical methodologies.
SAS continues to add capabilities to its arsenal of statistical
techniques and continues to widen its scope of statistical analysis.
- Ensure easy and wide SAS software access
SAS seeks to support and encourage the use of SAS software for educational
and research purposes as well as for business purposes (internships,
stages). Teachers, students and researchers from participating institutions
are therefore entitled to install and use the SAS software for educational
and research purposes both at the institution and on their private computers.
A special work placement agreement between SAS Institute, the institution,
the student and the company allows the student to install and use any
part of the SAS System during the work placement.
