About the Department
The Department of Statistics was established in 2006. Currently, the department offers M.Sc. Statistics, M.Sc. Five Year Integrated (Statistics), Ph.D. (Statistics), M.Sc Quantitative Finance programmes. The department aims to train students in the development and applications of Statistical techniques for analyzing data arising in the scientific investigation of problems in various disciplines. It also provides first hand practical experience in handling modern statistical software in the analysis of such data. In the present scenario, it is rather impossible, even to think of any field which does not employ modern statistical tools to arrive at rational conclusions from research studies and a statistician is always an indispensable part of any research team carrying out any research investigation.
The Department is supported for development of infrastructure by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under FIST program and University Grants Commission (UGC) – Special Assistance Program (SAP) – DRS – I level. The faculty members are actively engaged in research and published papers in National and International journals.
