Statistical methods and the applications of probability theory are essential to the understanding of data and underlying processes in a very wide variety of fields, including health sciences,
economics, and finance. Statistics is considerably more applied and vocational than many
other courses. The vision of the department is to promote a quality education and productive
research in different fields of Statistics. By extending the contributions in business, industry, and
society, we enable our graduates to lead the research community, statistical profession, and society
at large.
Department of Statistics is to contribute to the overall objectives of University of Mianwali through
excellence in research and education in the Statistical Sciences. We aim to promote and sustain an
environment that fosters creativity, critical thought, enquiry, and active learning equity.

Central Library is an academic hub of research and discovery for the UMW community. CL offers outstanding multidisciplinary resources and services in support to university academic and research objectives. This prestigious library of University of Mianwali has also been striving to support its users to solve the Socioeconomic issues prevailing these days. CL is equipped with all required sources of information both in hard and digital formats.

It is a matter of satisfaction that we have developed our web online public access catalogue (OPAC) that can help the users to reach our library database worldwide and remotely accessible 24/7.

Mathematics is basically the study of quantity, structure, and change. Those who study Mathematics are known as Mathematicians.
Mathematicians make use of variables, products, sums, and sequences to study number theories and perform mathematical analysis.
There are vast applications of Mathematics in our daily life, such as from managing budgets to making computer graphics.

Even measuring food recipes for designing haircuts and making sense of medical scans, all involve counting, measuring, order, and relation. Mathematicians are detail-oriented as they perform quantitative reasoning and apply theories to real-world situations. Arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and calculus are branches of mathematics for study.

You can specialize in Economics and Mathematics or Statistics and Mathematics to gain jobs in the business, finance and accountancy services. Nowadays, there is a great demand for mathematicians in government and private districts due to rising technological advances and educational awareness. Due to vast applications of Mathematics in various fields, many petroleum and nuclear industries, operational research firms, engineering, and pharmaceuticals companies hire mathematicians.

Space science and astronomy fields also hire mathematicians along with IT and insurance agencies. As a Mathematician, you can also work in educational establishments as a postsecondary teacher. If you are good at coding and decoding, encryption, and computer skills, there are opportunities in cybersecurity areas. You can work as a cryptographer or a data security analyst.
