Statistics are the science of analyzing data. In the era of information outbreaks, statistics are based on mathematical theory, using computers to analyze various data, and extract the most important and useful messages in the data so that the most reasonable and scientific decisions can be made. Therefore, the mission statement of Department of Statistics is to cultivate qualified professionals with enthusiasm and global perspectives. The Department of Accounting and Statistics, founded in 1955, was divided into the Accounting Division and the Statistics Division in 1958. In August 1974, the two divisions became independent departments: the Department of Accountancy and the Department of Statistics. In the same year, the evening program of the Department was established. It started the master program in August 1991. In 1998, the Department began to offer the Ph.D. degree. In addition, to coincide with the era of big data, the Department of Statistics applied for the establishment of "Institute of Data Science". The Institute of Data Science will be established in 2018 to offer a master degree and actively cultivate students with data analysis talent.
