Mine, analyze, and model. Big data rules.
Why study statistics? Big data is revolutionizing our society. A degree in statistics will prepare you to work in nearly any industry or to pursue a graduate degree in statistics or an allied area, such as biostatistics, epidemiology, or analytics.
Join a department that feels like a family (according to our students). Learn statistical theory, applied statistics, and statistical computing. Choose an application area—a discipline in which statistical techniques are commonly applied—and complete a core of courses in that area. Conduct undergraduate research with faculty mentors. Be a coach in the Math Learning Center to provide tutoring for your peers. At Michigan Tech, you'll learn in an environment with an emphasis on computing to better prepare you for internships, jobs, or graduate school.
