Importance of Statistics…

Statistics is a science that concerns with principles and procedures for obtaining and processing information in order to make decisions in the face of uncertainty. In particular, it concerns with collection, organization, analysis, and interpretation of numerical information to answer questions in almost every aspect of modern-day life.

Statistics could be applied in a variety of operations, such as, the design for survey, the scientific experimental design, the analysis of economic time-series data for the prediction of the parameters, the analysis for the business decision, and the analysis of the system operations to correct the errors and to discover the increasingly efficient process.

The statistics has a significant function in various areas. Therefore, Faculty of Science, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, has offered Bachelor of Science (Applied Statistics) program in 1982 and Master of Science (Applied Statistics) program in 1999.

 

Mission

Department of Statistics offers Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Applied Statistics with two different majors, Applied Statistics and Operations Research, programs. The programs provide students with access to statistical skills preparing them for careers in almost any field, including education, science, industry, technology, health care, government, business and further postgraduate academic training. For students engaged in Bachelor of Science degree, the department also provides courses of Co-operative Education/Oversea Training for individuals requiring specialized statistical skills and job experience in the workplace.
