All the questions were well answered by Mr. Tarang Shah and Mr. Nahush Sathe. The seminar guided the students in the right direction giving them a clear view of the future scenario.
On 22nd January 2016, Statistics Association organized an event on “ Application of Statistics”. The main motto of conducting this event was to give a background of the variety of applications of statistics in different fields like Finance, Marketing, Statistical Geography, Statistical Mathematics, Biostatistics, Chemo metrics, Statistical Physics, Social Statistics and the list goes on  the students who study the subject (theory + practical) but are not aware of its humungous applications outside in the real world.
Students of first year, second year and the third year actively participated in drawing this awareness to all the other students by making presentations and delivering the same. It was only with the continuous support of the teachers and the staff that the students could put in their efforts in making the presentations. The panel of judges were Dr. Ujwala Deshmukh, Mr. Chaitanya Alshi and Mr. Amrit Rajwadkar.
The judges interacted with the students by asking them questions on their presentations and The students were also judged on various skills. At the end of the event they were awarded by I/C Principal Dr. D.V.Kamat. Last but not the least the overwhelming response from the audience without whom the event would not have been successful.
The journey of this event was fascinating as all the students of the department were exposed to so many applications that indeed this will help them somewhere in their career even if they do not major in Statistics.
