Bachelor's degree in Statistics

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech

Bachelor's degree in Statistics (interuniversity UB-UPC degree)

The bachelor’s degree in Statistics, coordinated by the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and with the UPC as a participant, will provide you with the training you need in statistics, probability, operations research, computer science and economics. The course will give you the necessary grounding to design methods for collecting and transforming data into valuable decision-making input for companies, organisations and institutions; to manage quality control and improvement processes; and to produce public opinion studies, statistical reports, epidemiological studies and clinical trials in the field of health care. The course is offered jointly with the University of Barcelona (UB), so students reap the rewards of a richer learning experience, benefiting from the combined expertise of UPC and UB teaching staff in engineering and technology, economics, and social and health sciences.
