College of Statistical Sciences

The subject of statistics was introduced in the University of the Punjab at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels in 1941. In 1950 the Department of Statistics was established by late Dr. M. Zia ud Din. In the same year in addition to postgraduate diploma course, a two-year Master's Degree Program in Statistics was started. In 1952, the Department was upgraded to the status of the Institute. Since its inception, the Institute has been engaged in individual and collective research in the field of theoretical and applied statistics. In 2007, the Institute of Statistics was upgraded to the College of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences.

Presently, the College is offering academic programs in the following areas:
1. Statistics
2. Operations Research
3. Actuarial Science
4. Biostatistics
5. Business Statistics and Management

We are planning to offer a specialization in 'Data Science'.
