Department of Statistics



Sylvester Anaba

(BEd Maths, MSc Statistics - Head of Department)


This Department was established on 13th October, 2003 to offer Higher National Diploma (HND) in Statistics. It was the first to be accredited by NAPTEX in the Polytechnic.  We offer exceptional opportunities for study and research in main areas of applied statistics. We give guidance for further studies in Statistics and professional research. The employment prospects of Higher National Diploma (HND) graduates in Statistics are enormous.  Apart from self-employment, graduates can also be employed by NGOs, private sector as well as the Public Sector.

Department Units are yet to be populated.
