Combine your passion for numbers with an interest in technology to study in a specialization that focuses on how mathematics shape and influence our daily lives.

You can tell a lot about an individual, a society, or even a whole nation simply by looking at the numbers – covering anything from what colour people prefer in branding to the odds of a meteor hitting Earth to what you will have for breakfast tomorrow. Through a specialization in Statistics, you will incorporate pure math, big data, and computing to navigate the knowledge interwoven in numbers and to build your skills in the art and science of predication and explanation, preparing you for career success in everything from medicine and communications to marketing and technology.
