Development Characteristics
The Institute is a complete graduate institute, offering M.S. and Ph.D. programs. In addition to fundamental theoretical statistics courses, students are encouraged to take courses in industrial statistics, financial statistics, and biostatistics. These three areas of statistics are considered the forefront of the field, and their theories and applications are worthy of research and study.
Industrial Statistics
 
Statistical researchers have successfully promoted the use of industrial statistics in Taiwan for many years. Researchers have laid the foundation for the practice of statistical concepts and methods, such as product design, quality control and manufacturing and inspection assurance. These practices have helped Taiwanese industries implement product warranty, monitoring and inspection processes that meet international standards.
Financial Statistics
 
In the past twenty years, the financial sector has experienced a significant change in its investment processes, due to new computational techniques and methods. Today, international financial institutions increase their competitive strength, using these computational and technical innovations. These computational methods integrate techniques from applied mathematics, probability and statistics, computer science, and economics. The fiscal theories contained in these methods are used to solve common financial questions like product warranty assessment, investment compound structure, risk management, and case simulation.
Biostatistics
 
Biostatistics plays an important role in public health and medical sciences. With the growth of computer power, it is necessary and interesting to develop new techniques and methods for analyzing large and complex biological data set. Our focus is to use existing methods, or to develop new analysis methods to solve questions in the study of biology, medicine, pharmacology, epidemiology, and environmental medicine.

Goals
Our course offers featured seminars and discussion of publications. Distinguished scholars are invited to present their research, and students orally present one topic at the end of each semester. Additionally, we offer theory and applied statistics courses to nurture students with a balance of theory and practice. The Institute also provides training in written and oral skills.

Postgraduate Opportunities
Career Opportunities
 
Graduates have access to various job opportunities in academics, information systems, computer science, electronic engineering, finance, insurance, consulting, government statistics and auditing, and research centers.
