The field of Statistics offers a variety of exciting career opportunities. Statistics deals with methods for the collection, visualization, modeling and analysis of data. Massive amounts of data are now routinely collected in business, health, environment, engineering and social sciences. Statistics is the science that transforms these data into information that is critical for decision making. Statistics has always played a major role in marketing, public policy, social and health sciences through the design and analysis of surveys. More recently, statistical methods have been an important part of advances in medicine and engineering such as genetics, tomography, speech recognition, computational vision, and so on. Statistics is a vibrant field that is embarking on an even more exciting journey as we move ahead to the data-rich, information era of the 21st century. We invite you to join us on this journey and share in the excitement!
The Department of Statistics is also a partner in the new interdisciplinary major in Informatics. Michigan's interdisciplinary approach to teaching Informatics gives you a solid grounding in contemporary computer programming, mathematics, and statistics, combined with study of the ethical and social science aspects of complex information systems.
