Message from Thematic Head

The subject of statistical science is concerned with the application of probability and modern mathematical methods to solve complex and practical problems which involve uncertainty.  These uncertainties are usually associated with scientific, technological, economic, biological or environmental problems.  The methodology employed draws upon mathematics and probability to establish a theoretical foundation, computing resources for handling data, and an understanding of the scientific method for meaningful application.

The B.Sc. course is designed to provide broad education in the basic theory and methods of statistics, that would enable the student to apply the knowledge acquired to a wide range of practical problems in research, industry, economic and social development, agriculture and medical research, etc.

The programme provides for four main areas of specialisation: Mathematical Statistics, Economic Statistics, Demography and Social Statistics, and Biometry
