Course Description

Statistical Computing is a multidisciplinary field of study that combines statistics, numerical analysis, and computer science. This term also refers to the application of statistical tools and methods that heavily rely on computer technology. On the other hand, Operations Research is a powerful decision-making and problem-solving tool that is applicable to all businesses. Problems in operations research are broken down into basic components and then mathematically solved in defined steps.


The Statistical Computing and Operations Research degree programme at UTAR has uniquely integrated Statistical Computing, Operations Research, and Management into the curriculum in the hopes of providing graduates with a variety of statistical tools, decision sciences techniques, data science, and data analytics to analyse and resolve real-world business operational issues. Students will learn managerial and other important skills for effectively and efficiently managing organisational resources in the industry.


In addition, students must complete a three-month training in manufacturing or service industries. This will prepare students to complete their final year project and increase their future employability.

Graduates may apply for membership in related professional bodies associations both locally and internationally, including the Royal Statistical Society UK, The Operational Research Society UK, Malaysian Institute of Statistics, The Operations Research/Management Science Society of Malaysia, and others.
