Collecting, analyzing, inferring data to validate a study by increasing consistency and minimizing uncertainty is at the crux of Statistics as a subject. Research today is not accepted without statistical analysis. The subject has burgeoned into data mining, big data analysis, machine learning and data visualizing. Hence, the statistics department today has forayed into the “Gateway to Data Science”, giving thrust to building the latest skill set in their students. Other than the conventional undergraduate programme in Statistics offered to the Science Stream, the department also offers the subject to Arts Stream. Moreover, due to an increasing demand for Big Data Analytics, the department has collaborated with the department of Computer Sciences, SXCA and Tata Consultancy Services to plan and design a curriculum for post graduate studies.
