Bachelor of Science in Applied Statistics Honours Degree

( Statistics Department)

CHAIRMAN's REMARKS

Applied statistics provides our way of thinking and our approach to extracting the most information from numbers with uncertainty. The presence of uncertainty leads us to infer rather than deduce solutions and it is applied statistics that we rely upon to measure the accuracy and reliability of the extracted information.
Applied Statisticians and analysts not only interpret “big data,” but communicate the meaning of their findings. They help companies and organisations with methodologies, innovations, solutions, and practical implementations to produce tangible results through analytics.
