This proram offers a range of traditional avenues in academics, Govt Service, IAS, Indian Statistical/Economic services, Industries, commerce personnel/Investigator in Govt. organizations. It also provides an array of non-traditional employment avenues ranging from stock Brokers Analyst, Sports Analyst, Poll Analyst, Business Analyst, Financial Analyst etc.

Program outcome (Major):

Describe- Statistics:

Paper 101: This paper aims at solving a variety of economics problems such as wages, prices, analysis of time series and demand analysis.

Probability – 2

Paper 102: This paper provide students knowledge of analysis of random phenomena. The actual outcome is considered determined by chance.

Paper 103: Practical based on paper 101 AND PAPER 102

Numerical and computational Techniques – 1

Paper 201: This paper leads to recognize under what condition a method can be followed and what starting value to choose from in order to ensure that the chosen method shall work.

Mathematical method – 1

Paper 202: Student will have knowledge of basic properties of the field of real numbers, the knowledge of the series of real numbers and convergence, the knowledge of real function limits of functions and their properties and the differentiability of real functions and related theorems.

Paper 203: Practical based on paper 201

Mathematical Methods – II

Paper 301: This paper helps students to use computational techniques and algebraic skills essential for the study of systems of linear equations, matrix algebra and critically analyze and construct mathematical arguments that relate to the study of linear algebra.

Distribution -1

Paper 302: Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to use discrete and continuous probability distributions, including requirements, mean and variance and malaing decisions. They also identify the type of statistical situation to which different distributions can be applied.

Paper 303: practical based on topics in paper 301 and 302.

Mathematical Methods – 3 and or 1

Paper 401: This paper provide knowledge of a wide range of mathematical techniques and application of mathematical method/tools in order scientific and engineering domains.

Descriptive Statistics – 2 and Probability – 2

Paper 402: After completion this course, the students should have developed a clear understanding of different approaches to the theory of sampling. It also provide knowledge of tolls needed to analyze stochastic processes.

Paper 403: Practical from paper 401 and paper 402

Sampling Distribution and Statistical Inference – 1

Paper 501: This paper provide information of sampling distribution and statistical inference. Inferential statistical analysis infers properties about a population, this includes testing hypotheses and deriving estimates.

Sample Survey

Paper 502: After completing the course, students have developed clear understanding of basic concept of survey sampling. Most of the research work is done through sample Survey.

Applied Statistics -1

Paper 503: This course will help students to know the applications of Statistics and will give exposure to the fields of Statistics vix. Time series, Index number, Statistical Quality control. It also gives information about the basic concepts of linear models, which are useful both in the planning stages of research and the analysis of data.

Operations Research II

Paper 504 : This paper contain the topic ‘Operation Research’ which is not only confined to any specific agency like defence services but today it is widely used in all industrial organization.

Paper 505: Practicals based on paper 501 and paper 502

Paper 506: Practicals based on paper 503 and paper 504

Paper 601: Statistical Inference

This paper provides information of deducing properties of an underlying probability distribution by analysis of data. Students should have achieved testing of hypothesis using Non-parametric tests like median test, Run test, U test etc. and ability to use them judiciously for the testing of given data.

Paper 602: Design of Experiments

This paper contains the topics ‘Design of Experiment’ is widely used in many fields with broad application across all the natural and social sciences to name a few: Bio Statistics, Agriculture, marketing, software engineering, Industry etc.

Paper 603: Applied Statistics – 2

After completion the course, students should have developed clear understanding of Indian official statistical system. It also give information about demographic data and give knowledge about various rates of fertility and mortality. They will also be having hands on practice of working on the data and interpreting the results related to above mentioned fields.

Paper 604: Computer Programming and Multivariate Analysis

The learning objective include study of theoretical concepts of Bivariate Normal and multivariate normal Distributions along with their properties, Analyze multi variate data. It also give information about the Fortran language, writing small programs for determination of commonly used statistical measures and for carrying out simple statistical analysis

Paper 605: Practical’s based on Design of Experiments, Testing of Hypothesis, Non-parametric and Demography

Project

Student will be required to go for data collection of some topics under the guidance of teachers of department. While data collection may be done in a group, the analysis, conclusion and report writing would have to be done individually by each student. By doing this project, Students should have developed clear understanding of collecting, tabulating, analysis and reporting of data
