Statistics

Statistics students taking notes during a lecture.

Mine, analyze, and model. Big data rules.

Health. Transportation. Layers of history, charting the future. The statistics program at Michigan Tech prepares you to find your place in the exponential expansion of data collection and application.

Why study statistics? Big data is revolutionizing many areas of our society and a degree in statistics will prepare you to work in industry or to pursue a graduate degree in statistics or an area, such as biostatistics, epidemiology, or analytics. You’ll be prepared to play a central role in areas such as medical research, quality control in manufacturing, environmental sciences, or government and policy research.

Current students say the mathematical department feels like a family. Be a part of Michigan Tech’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program. Co-op, intern, and attend Career Fairs in fall and spring (more than 350 companies).
