Welcome to the Department of Statistics!
The research focus of the department is on statistics and stochastic processes. We are part of the area of research excellence Multiple Perspectives in Optimization and cooperate in the international scientific community as well as with Carinthian companies.
We focus on the promotion of early career researchers. The Department of Statistics is involved in the doctoral programme Modeling – Analysis – Optimization of discrete, continuous, and stochastic systems and is also home to the FWF-funded doc.funds doctoral school.
We run the study programmes Technical Mathematics (Bachelor) and Mathematics (Master) together with the Department of Mathematics. We also offer modern statistics and stochastics training for numerous degree programmes at the University of Klagenfurt. We stand for excellent supervision, numerous practical opportunities due to our close connection to business enterprises, and research-led teaching.
The Department of Statistics was founded in 2007 as an independent organizational unit. It emerged from the statistics research group of the Department of Mathematics. Since 2020, the head of the department is Univ.-Prof. Dr. Michaela Szölgyenyi.
