"It is easy to lie with statistics. It's hard to tell the truth without it." - Andrejs Drunkels. The Department of Statistics was established in the year 2001. Initially, Undergraduate General-course was offered for the Economics, Mathematics and Physics Honours students. From 2015-16 Session, the Department started offering 3 year Honours Degree course in Statistics.

Presently the Department has four full-time teachers and two Government approved part-time teachers. The Department has an excellent record of academic results.
