Course Summary

Overview

The demand for numerate graduates exceeds the supply in most areas. Many new and existing opportunities – in industry, medicine, government, commerce or research – await science graduates who have supplemented their first degree with additional training in quantitative skills, such as those provided by the postgraduate programmes available within the Department of Statistical Science. The automation of manufacturing and service sectors is facilitated by advances in computing; however, this transition towards data-driven decision-making requires more sophisticated use of statistics. Analysing larger volumes of data creates both challenges that can be addressed by existing statistical methods and also opportunities for the development of novel algorithms.

Careers

Graduates of the PhD programme are well placed to continue as researchers in both academia and the private sector. In particular, greater data collection has created a demand for enhanced methodologies for analysis, which is a strength of most recent graduates.
