Statistical Techniques deal with acquisition, representation, analysis and interpretation of data. Statistics is an emerging field and the demand for statistics professionals is increasing by the day due to its applications potential in several fields such as rural and urban planning, data monitoring, natural resources management, management of industrial and business problems and social and agricultural development, etc. The PG Diploma in Applied Statistics Programme (PGDAST) has been developed to cater to the needs of working professionals and graduates aspiring for employment in industries (e.g., software, core and applied industries, medicine, and pharmaceutical industries), National Laboratories, R & D Organisations and Academic Institutions (Science and Technology, Engineering and Medical Colleges and Universities, etc.).
The programme aims to provide the core knowledge and computer-based exercises in selected areas of statistics and to acquaint the learners with the use of statistical tools in the analysis of industrial, social and business data.
Programme Objectives:
The Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Statistics is proposed with the objectives to:
• provide learners with the core knowledge required for statistical applications,
• familiarise the real-life problems to the learners and promote them to the use of statistics in applied Sciences along with applications in industrial and medical fields,
• provide computer based exercises in the selected areas of Statistics,
• equip them with the skills of using appropriate software for statistical applications in various fields.
This programme is especially useful for the working professionals in R&D and Quality Control divisions in core and software Industries, Commerce, Pharmaceutical and Management departments of various Universities/Institutes, who are interested in updating their knowledge in Statistics. It would also help fresh Graduates, who wish to continue their education and are interested in getting into the field of Applied Statistics.
