The Department of Statistics, Sister Nivedita University was established in 2018. Currently, the department offers B.Sc Statistics Honours,  M.Sc. Statistics and Ph.D. (Statistics) programmes. The main aim of this department is to educate students in the evolution and implementation of Statistical techniques to interpret data arising in the scientific investigation of problems in various disciplines. It also provides hands-on experience in handling modern statistical software in the analysis of such data. In this present situation, it is quite impossible, even to think of any field which does not employ modern statistical tools to arrive at rational conclusions from research studies and a statistician is always an indispensable part of any research team carrying out any research investigation.
