    Department of Statistics

    Department of Statistics


    Introduction :

    The Department of Statistics, University of Mumbai was established in the year 1948. It was the first Department in the western region, for postgraduate studies and research in Statistics. The Department will complete 61 years of existence in this year. It offers postgraduate courses leading to the Master of Arts and Science (M.A./ M.Sc.) degree, by papers, awarded by the University of  Mumbai. In addition to the master’s programme, M.Phil and Ph.D. degree programmes , post graduate diploma in actuarial science (PGDAS) and post graduate diploma in applied statistics with software (PGDASS) are also undertaken by the Department. Experienced faculty of the Department is devoted to research in their respective areas of specialization. Research and teaching are given equal importance by the faculty. Extra care is taken to pay individual attention to the students in their laboratory work and tutorial sessions. Project work and problem sessions are encouraged to develop innovative and analytical approach to statistics learning. The Department has a long cherished history of having produced eminent academicians and successful statisticians in the Industry. It is the only center of University of Mumbai for conducting M.A./ M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D., PGDAS and PGDASS programmes.



    The Department of Statistics is housed in Lokmanya Tilak Bhavan located in well planned Vidyanagari Campus of the University of Mumbai . The Vidyanagri Campus is off the C.S. T. road (now known as Vidyanagari Marg) near Kalina and is accessible from Kurla on Central Railway and Santacruz on Western Railway . BEST bus routes 318, 313, 619,213 and 37 starting either from Kurla [West] (Central Railway) and Santacruz (East) (Western Railway) pass via vidyanagari. Also 312  between Seepz and Pratiksha Nagar, 374 ltd. between Goregaon and B.A.R.C. Anushaktinagar, 449 ltd between Dharavi and Kandiwali station  & 181 plying between Seepz and Prabodhankar Thakare Udyan  pass via Vidyanagari.



    There are Girl’s and Boy’s hostels within the campus. Two rooms in Boy’s hostel and two rooms in Girl’s hostel are reserved for the Department students.

  • Facilities, Lab


    The Department has excellent computing facility. There are two computer laboratories: The laboratories have following equipments:
     Pentium based machines connected in network.
     All computers are connected to Internet.

    Department of Statistics has following Statistical Softwares 

    • Statistical Application Software (SAS)
    • Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS)
    • Minitab

    The students are being trained in other prominent statistical software packages such as veka, SQL for Data Mining.

  • Library

    Jawaharlal Nehru Library at the Vidyanagari Campus is well equipped with Statistics books, journals and periodicals. The students enrolled in the Department can avail of both reading as well as lending facilities offered by the library. However, students enrolled in other postgraduate centers can only avail of reading facility.

  • Courses

    The M.A./M. Sc  program in Statistics by papers is of two years (four semester) duration. The first and second years are termed as M.A./M. Sc Part I  and  M.A./M. Sc Part II respectively. The structure of the M.A./M. Sc program in Statistics by papers is as follows. 

    M.A./M. Sc Part I consists of two semesters. In each semester there shall be four compulsory courses and two practical courses. 

    M.A./M. Sc Part II consists of two semesters. In each semester there shall be two compulsory courses,  two optional courses and  two practical courses. 

    In all there shall be four theory courses each of 75/100 marks for M.A./M. Sc respectively and two practical courses each of 100 marks, for each semester. 

    The performance of the learners shall be evaluated in two components. Internal Assessment with 40% marks by way of continuous evaluation and by Semester End Assessment with 60% marks by conducting the semester end examination.

  • Placements


        The students of M.A./ M.Sc Statistics (Part I and Part II), PGDAS, PGDASS form the placement committee, guided by two senior teachers. They undertake many tasks, the prime one being that of looking after the campus interviews. They prepare the department brochure and post the same to selected companies and many of these visit the campus for recruitment .
    The recruitments are carried for the Part II, PGDAS, and PGDASS students. Each and every student has to fill the placement form which is an undertaking stating the rules of the Placement Committee. The details of the visit of the companies are taken care by the committee. The committee also organizes other intellectual events. They conduct meetings on a regular basis to put forth their problems and discuss the agenda. The committee is thus a representation of the students and act as a layer between the students and the faculty of the department .
