Aims

  1. The BSc in Statistics and Decision Science programme aims to produce graduates with a coherent training in applied statistics, data analysis, operational research methods, and quantitative modeling skills together with experiences in critical and risk evaluation in various decision sciences.
  2. The BSc (Hons) in Statistics and Decision Science programme aims to provide graduates with further training and develop statistics and decision science skills and. It also intends to enable students to develop decision science skills in non-mathematical areas, such as accounting, environmental management, financial analysis, economic and money and banking.

Expected Learning Outcomes

In completion of the BSc and BSc (Hons) in Statistics and Decision Science graduates should be able to:

  1. interpret ideas of statistical principles, mathematical methods and decision science techniques, based on the knowledge of a variety of concepts and theories learned.
  2. critically analyze, evaluate and/or synthesize ideas, concepts, and information using statistical and mathematical methods to evaluate decision problems critically and to provide evaluation research output.
  3. command some sophisticated statistical and mathematical modeling tools in evaluating the decision process.
  4. use different type of statistical and mathematical software to evaluate problems, obtain solutions and to predict the outcome of the decision, and to provide evidence-based responses.
  5. draw on a range of non-mathematical and non-statistical disciplines and theories to make judgments of various decision sciences.
  6. perform tasks involving planning and development of appropriate models for problem solving and recommend solution to the management.
  7. have the same academic standing as those from other Hong Kong tertiary institutions and are suitable for studying for higher degrees in relation to statistics, operational research and decision science programmes.
  8. demonstrate professional skills and intellectual ability in applying the concept and knowledge of decision science techniques to a variety of design and operational issues in commerce, networks design, environmental monitoring, finance, inventory planning, medical research and government agencies, and many areas designed to improve business productivity and efficiency.
