Department of Statistics
The need for Statistics has made itself felt in almost every phase of human activity. It is now considered to encompass the science of basing inferences on observed data and the entire problem of making decisions in the face of uncertainties. Our objectives are to train students, to promote research and to extend frontier of knowledge in Statistics.
