The Statistics program at Savitribai Phule Pune University has some unique features such as independent projects, a large number of elective courses, pre-requisite system and extensive computer training of statistical computations including standard software packages such as Mathematica, MATLAB , Minitab, R, Python, etc.
The independent project work is one of the important components of this program. The syllabus of the first year (two semesters) covers most of the core courses. In the second year of the syllabus, there are four core courses, five optional courses and one project. The syllabus has been framed to have a good balance of theory, methods and applications of statistics. It is possible for the students to study basic courses from other disciplines such as economics, life sciences, computer science and mathematics in place of optional/electives.
In last few years, our students have been recruited by international software and pharmaceutical industries. These are Pfizer, Novartis, Ideas, Systat, Quantlinks, SPSS, SAS, GE Finance, Codelinks, Hindustan lever, among others.
After graduating, students can choose research careers in India as well as the US, Canada or the UK. Students have also been recruited as officers in RBI, Indian Statistical Services, Bureau of Economics and Statistics.
