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.

A pass in B. Sc. in Mathematics / Statistics / Computer Science/ B. Tech. Computer Science with minimum 60% marks.
Based on the marks obtained in the qualifying examination and interview.
The curriculum and syllabi for this program are on par with any reputed educational institution in India and abroad. Syllabus is framed in such a way that the candidates will be competent enough to take up the tests like NET, SLET, GATE etc. The Program offers comprehensive instruction in the theory, methods and application of Statistics. The courses include computer-intensive classes as a tool to support the analysis and interpretation of statistical data.
The department always focuses on evolving with the changing needs of our stakeholders (students/parents/recruiters). The feedback from our stakeholders reveals that the curriculum and syllabi for Applied Statistics and Data Analytics are on par with any reputed educational institution in India and abroad. Students are finding it more interesting as the program is a combination of both Statistics and Data Analytics. They learn advanced programming languages and application of statistical software which are useful in industries and IT companies. The intersection of Statistics and Data Analytics has enabled more sophisticated ways in learning. They have learnt to implement, and do experiments with data analysis techniques and algorithms which will lead them to be effective practitioners in data handling at the end of second year. Students can identify and deploy appropriate modeling and methodologies in order to extract meaningful information for decision making. They can also analyze big data and make data-driven predictions through probabilistic modeling and statistical inference.
