INSTAT: 19 significant years

The Institute of Statistics (INSTAT) marked its 19th year in the college. Tracing its roots to IMSP as the Department of Statistics and Statistical Laboratory (DSSL), INSTAT was officially created by the Board of  Regents on February 26, 1998. Since then, INSTAT has produced skilled and competent statisticians serving inside and outside of the country.

The anniversary celebration of INSTAT with theme “Analytics: Gearing towards Data-Driven Decisions” kicked off with a symposium held at INSTAT Lecture Hall last February 24. The symposium showcased the outstanding papers of  the two teams of BS Statistics students in the recently concluded SAS Analytics Champion 2017.
