Statistics & Analytics

The Department of Statistics was established in the year 1989. The nomenclature was modified to Department of Statistics and Analytics in 2017. Statistics was offered with Mathematics and Computer Science as a B.Sc (CMS) course from 1989. In the year 1993, an inter-disciplinary course B.Sc (EMS) was started where Statistics was included along with Mathematics and Economics. The primary objective of the department is to impart education in Statistics, to give an in-depth knowledge of Statistics and its applications across domains. Be it Biology, Psychology, Economics, Finance, Management or any other field, Statistics plays an important role to draw inferences about sampled populations, to inculcate logical reasoning in students and improve their analytical skills. In the present era of Data Science and Analytics a good grounding in Statistics is a much desired pre-requisite. Under NEP, from 2021 onwards the department offers Dual Discipline Honours Programme with departments of Mathematics, Computer Science and Economics.
In addition to B.Sc courses, the department also offers a Bachelor of Vocation course in Analytics from 2014. The course was initially sponsored by UGC. This industry-integrated course draws its visiting/guest faculty from various companies of the IT sector. The aim of this course is to bridge the academia-industry gap. The department also handles the Bio-Statistics and the Probability and Statistics courses which are a part of the curriculum of many post-graduate programs offered by different departments of the college.
