The two-year M.Sc. Program on Applied Statistics and Data Analytics is intended for the students who aspire to excel in data analytics. It provides a spectrum of basics to advanced statistical methods and their applications to both conventional and IT industries that enable to tackle emerging problems. The curriculum covers emerging topics such as Big Data Analytics, Pattern Recognition and Marketing Analytics to deal with vast data from business, healthcare, sensors, Internet, surveys, social media, astronomy, human space exploration and operations, and aeronautics. In addition to the regular curriculum, students are encouraged to take up summer/winter In-plant training/Internship. This will help students to learn about using data mining techniques to analyze data, discover patterns, suggest analytical models to identify and respond to various patterns such as structural pattern, creational pattern and behavioral pattern, and then enrich the enactment of business, technological, industrial and healthcare processes by implanting the analytical models within the consistent operational applications. A full length project is included in the curriculum to be completed in the final semester. Students are expected to take up such projects in industries. This helps students to gain knowledge on working conditions and industrial requirements when they are employed.
