MASTER OF STATISTICS IN MARINE SCIENCE (BY COURSEWORK)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Statistics plays a major role in most of real life situation. From understanding the characteristics of the systems to the forecasting of the complex phonemena, the integration of statistics into the modelling part of the system is really demanded. The aim of this programme is to foster an advanced statistics knowledge not only in marine science and oceanography, but also in other fields. You will discover the decision making of the complex problems using advanced statistics with the aid of computer programming. 

 

PEO1 : Knowledgeable and have a deep understanding of statistics in marine science and eager to explore new and challenging field of knowledge.

PEO2:Proficient in using computer technology to solve statistical problems in marine science critically and innovatively.

PEO3:Able to lead with trust and full ethical and able to work with team members professionally.

PEO4:Ability to organize ideas, information, and data on a regular basis and be able to  deliver it effectively through the effective use of technology.

PEO5:Ability to identify opportunities and the ability to develop a business plan based on knowledge in the field of statistics in marine science.
