The Department of Statistics provides the following state-of-the-art computing facilities for teaching and research purposes, which are managed by the Statistical Laboratory Management Committee.
- We have two Statistical/Risk Management Science Computer Laboratories, totally equipped with 114 PCs, for both undergraduate and postgraduate students’ use.
- Each postgraduate student is provided with an All-In-One desktop PC with Intel Core i7 CPU and 64 GB main memory.
- Four Bloomberg terminals are available for students and staff use.
- All PCs are driven by Microsoft Windows 11/10 Enterprise Edition. Common application software such as Microsoft 365/Office 2016 Professional Plus, MATLAB, R, SAS and IBM SPSS Statistics are installed. The Department provides printing services on each PC.
- High-Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster:
- The department is pleased to provide HPC service for faculty members and students whose work requires intensive computations. HPC services are supported by our high performance Linux cluster. The cluster is particularly used for solving complex computational problems and it provides computing power to handle various big data research activities in the area of genomic, bio-informatics and so on.
