The Department of Statistics of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University was established in 1972
as a joint Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The mathematics section later got
separated as a separate department.
In 1996, the department was also entrusted with the responsibility of running the Computer Science teaching programme (MCA, DCA) of the University and also with the administration of Central University Computer Centre. From 1996 to 2003 a significant part of Departmental resources and offices were devoted to consolidate the Computer Science teaching programmes and the Computer Centre, so as to achieve a situation in which the department could move a proposal for creation of a separate department of Computer Science. The proposal of the department was implemented by the University from academic the year 2003-04.
Continuing the efforts of the University and the department to serve the society through knowledge, the department successfully started a Higher Payment PG course, M.Sc. (Applied Statistics) from the academic year 2007-08 and now going to offer certificate course on "PYTHON FOR STATISTICS" from February/March 2022.
