DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS
At the undergraduate level in Delhi University, Statistics at Hindu College was the first in its league. It premiered in the year 1975, post which others followed this suit in the subsequent years.
From social networking to cloud computing to gaming, there is no field untouched by large amount of data – structured or unstructured. Adopting a scientific approach for analysing such data is the key to extraction of information. In this regard, Statistics as a subject plays a predominant role. It has wide ranging applications in areas such as the Google Intuitive Search, insurance premiums, “Shuffle Feature” on the iPods or other music players, Duckworth/Lewis Method in cricket etc.
The Department has a permanent faculty of seven committed teachers who specialize in various academic fields of Statistics like Inference, Stochastic Modeling, Prediction Theory, Biostatistics etc. Besides regular teaching, the faculty members are also involved in research projects and publishing books.
In an age overwhelmed with data, students possessing a first or second degree in Statistics are high on demand. With flourishing job opportunities and immense scope to rise, it is definitely the need of the hour. To name a few-Civil Services, Indian Statistical Services, Management Schools, Actuarial Sciences, Analytics.
The Department has a vibrant society, which organizes its annual function ‘KURTOSIS’. The festival includes a series of academic lectures, quizzing, debating etc.
