The college Management has observed that student community was opting for Statistics as a subject across various colleges of twin cities. Looking to start new courses the management convinced that the M.S.Cs. combination would add new dimension to the science course with statistics. Thus the Management of Keshav Memorial Institute of Commerce and Sciences has started M.S.Cs. course with the combination as statistics resulting the birth of Department of Statistics in the college. Hence The Department of Statistics was established in the year 1998-1999 with a vision of promoting the study of statistics among students.
The Department consists of faculty who are research oriented, intelligent and outspoken. The department believes in the idea that the vibrant academic environment is nurtured by highly motivated faculty, an opportunity to pursue research in front line areas of basic statistics-viz, Probability, Statistical inference as well as inter disciplinary areas of science where multivariate data analysis is required to be handled by the aid of Computers. The Department is known for its well-equipped Computer lab with MS-Excel and Tora Software.
