The Department provides a platform to the students to analyze the real-life data, drawing conclusions, and supporting conclusions by explaining the reasoning behind them. The Department also offers two certificate courses namely “Statistics using SPSS and MS excel” and “Data Science and Analytics”. The programme also includes internship and projects with analysis of real-life data. The main objectives of the department are to acquaint students with various statistical methods and their application in different fields, cultivate statistical thinking among students, develop skills in handling complex problems in data analysis and research design and to prepare students for future courses having quantitative components.

Introduction to Probability and Statistics and theoretical probability distributions are papers that helps students to acquire basic knowledge in statistics, understand the importance of statistics and will provide students basic knowledge in probability models and their applications in real life problems. The papers Statistical Inference- I and Statistical Inference -II provides basic knowledge in estimation theory.
Sampling theory and Design of experiments helps students to acquire knowledge in sampling methods and basic knowledge in principles of design of experiments and some standard designs. The paper Statistical Methods for Quality Management facilitates students to acquire basic knowledge about seven quality control tools. Applied statistics and Operations research are the papers offered to final year students which expose the students to the applications of statistics in various fields and enable students to under stand the importance of Operations research.
