Welcome to the Department of Statistics
History of the Department
The Department of Statistics of this institute came into existence in the year 1960 under the leadership of Shri. Mohile, the then head of the statistics department. At that time only undergraduate courses were taught.
During the tenure of Shri. V. G. Bhamburkar as head of the department, postgraduate course was introduced in the academic year 1982-83. Shri. V.G. Bhamburkar’s persistent persuasion yielded permission of opening of the Computer Department in 1990-91 which was jointly run along with the Statistics Department where the responsibility of teaching was solely shouldered by the faculties of Statistics Department.
For a long period of two decades, the department was well known by the name “Department of Statistics and Computer Science”. In the month of November 2005, the department organizsed a national level conference in collaboration with the Society of Statistics, Computer and Applications entitled, “8th Conference of Society of Statistics, Computer and Applications”. The convener of this conference was the head of the department of statistics and computer science Dr. R. G. Kedia.
In due course, the Govt. of Maharashtra appointed an assistant professor for the subject of computer science, one of which was posted to Amravati resulting in the separation of the Statistics, and Computer science departments in 2011.
The department organized workshops for the students and guest lectures which benefited the students. In the last six years, 17 students of PG standsin the merit list in the SGBAU PG examination.
One minor research project sponsored by U.G.C. has so far been completed by Dr. S. R. Kolhekar, faculty of this department. Dr. M. K. Mathankar and Dr. N. W. Andure (Yawale) currently working in the department have also completed minor research projects approved by Mumbai University and U.G.C. resp.
