  • Justification of need

The Interuniversity Postgraduate Program comes from the transformation of the Graduate Program in Statistics and Operational Research, an interuniversity also, that began to take place in 2000-2001 and which have formed a large group of doctors in the area of Statistics and Operational Research in recent years.
The birth of the third cycle in the first place, and the current Program of Statistics and Operational Research arises with the potential merger of teaching and research in this area of the three Galician universities: A Coruña, Vigo and Santiago de Compostela and the participation of visiting professors from renowned of national and foreign universities.
In this period, the third-cycle students had different profiles, nationalities and diverse academic training.

In Galicia there is currently no specific degree of Statistics. The only connection to the superior knowledge of Statistics is the current orientation of Statistics in the last degree courses in Mathematics at the University of Santiago. This Postgraduate Program, taking into account this point and the large number of requests from various disciplines that support statistical knowledge for their analysis in the world of engineering, finance, biomedicine, and so it was decided that Program that meets the requirements to include those students who wish to complement their academic studies, or on the other hand require a more professional knowledge of statistical techniques and operational research.
