Data Analysis, an important branch in mathematical sciences, is very vital today for all professionals, particularly for researchers, engineers, managers and analysts. The world is very dynamic today, especially with reference to abundance of information and multidisciplinary research. So it is a huge burden on the decision maker to analyse information and take meaningful decisions. With the availability of various multivariate techniques and user-friendly statistical software, the ability to analyse large amount of data is not only desirable, but a necessity for any professionals. Such techniques and software are usually very complex and confusing for the uninitiated.


There are several issues in this process like selection of appropriate technique, selection of right software, interpretation of results and so forth. The objective of this programme is to emphasize broad range of techniques for data analysis and to foster multi-disciplinary research in these areas.
