Majority of our students pursue their post graduate programs at institutes like Department of Statistics, University of Mumbai, NMIMS, University of Pune, IIT, IIM, etc. 


Message from Head of Department

“Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves” said Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the World Wide WebI truly believe that Data is the new oil of the world and those who understand how to handle data will rule the world. We teachstatistical techniques that are required for data analysis. Our curricula are designed to bridge the gap between academia and industry. In addition to it, the students are encouraged to participate in group research projects that give them hands on experience of various stages of data analysis using statistical tools.I am a very proud alumna of this department and have been a faculty member for the last three decades of this esteemed institution.
