Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis and interpretation of data to obtain information and support decision-making. It has been widely applied in many fields, including from biology, medicine, and engineering to psychology, accounting, finance and government policy. With the development of sensing, communication, and computing technologies, data gathering becomes more convenient and economical than ever, so that massive compilations of data have emerged in all kinds of areas. Through appropriate modeling and analysis, Big Data can effectively promote inference, estimation, tracking, learning and decision making. However, Big Data is so huge and complex that it also brings new challenges besides opportunities. Hence, graduates equipped with a solid training in statistical and computing skills will play a key role in solving various statistical problems, especially the Big Data challenges. They will be sought-after by employers and will likely contribute to the modern economy in a significant way.
To meet the rising demand for well-trained Statistics graduates in the information age, the programme’s curriculum is designed to encompass the core subjects of the field, while maintaining a balance between theory and practice. Topics covered include the foundations of statistics, computing and data management, statistical theories and methods, and statistical applications in business, finance, medicine, actuarial science, quality control and risk management science.
The Statistics programme provides three streams for the students to choose, which are:
1) Data Science
2) Financial Statistics
3) Statistical Science
The graduates in Statistics are capable to work and succeed in the business world and government agencies, as well as go to graduate school for further studies in the fields of science, engineering, and business administration.
