The minor programme in Statistics 

As statistical data analysis, modelling and inference are required in almost all areas of the natural and social sciences, technology and industrial research, there has always been a demand for trained graduates and specialists in different branches of  Statistics.  The M.Sc. (Applied Statistics and Informatics) offered by the Mathematics department caters to this need by producing applied statisticians armed with mathematical reasoning and programming skills.  

For the benefit of B. Tech. students interested in applying statistics in their discipline of graduation or for those aspiring for jobs that require statistical decision making, the Department of Mathematics  is offering a minor programme  comprising of the following important foundational courses 



Note that the institute mandates that at least 30 credits need to be earned in order to obtain a minor in a given discipline.
