Statistics is the science of making decisions in the face of uncertainty. Statisticians design experiments and surveys to answer important questions in business, education, government, and science. They then collect, analyze, and interpret this data.

Massive amounts of data are now routinely collected in business, health, environment, engineering and social sciences. Statistics is the science that transforms these data into information that is critical for decision making. Statistics has always played a major role in marketing, public policy, social and health sciences through the design and analysis of surveys. More recently, statistical methods have been an important part of advances in medicine and engineering such as genetics, tomography, speech recognition, computational vision, and so on. Statistics is a vibrant field that is embarking on an even more exciting journey as we move ahead to the data-rich, information era of the 21st century.

Due to the high demand in statisticians, the Department of Applied Statistics was established in 2009The department offers one undergraduate degree program (Bachelor of Applied Statistics) and two graduate degree programs (Master of Applied Statistics and vocational Master of Applied Statistics).
