PG ESTATISTICA

 

In 2013, the ICMC and the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) partnered to offer the Interinstitutional Program of Graduate Studies in Statistics (PIPGEs), the first USP interinstitutional program.

The objective is to educate Master´s and Doctorate students to meet the high potential and effective demand, by highly specialized professionals, trained to work in research centers at public and private institutions and by qualified teaching staff to teach courses in the area of Statistics and Probability, based on the low supply of graduate options in this area in Brazil.

The program, accredited by CAPES, obtained grade 4 in the last evaluation.

It is important to note that the campuses of the two universities are only four kilometers away, making it easy for students and faculty members to move to classrooms, seminar rooms, laboratories and libraries. Administrative meetings can be held at either of the campuses without incurring travel expenses.

The research lines offered by the Program are: 

  • Inductive statistics
  • Statistical Modelling
  • Stochastic Processes
  • Survival and Reliability Analysis
  • Temporal Series

Graduates from graduate programs at the ICMC hold prominent positions at universities, research centers, governmental agencies, as well as national and international companies. This impact can be identified regionally as many of them have become faculty members in prestigious universities in Brazil and South America and have created new research centers and graduate programs, which contributes greatly to the expansion of teaching and science.

 

Admission 

Master´s program

The Master's degree program is open to candidates graduated at higher education level in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, and related fields. Admission is by a selection process based on:

  • Analysis of the academic education (undergraduate and graduate records, if any) with weight 1.5 (one and a half);
  • Curriculum Vitae analysis (academic, research and professional activities) weighing 1.5 (one and a half);
  • Performance in the Summer Course in Probability Theory with weight 7 (seven).

If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question. 

Candidates who receive grade 6 or higher are considered approved on the program.

Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Master of Sciences"

 

Doctoral degree program

The Doctoral degree program is open to candidates holding a Master's degree.

Admission is by a selection process based on:

  • Analysis of academic education (graduate record) with weight 4.5 (four and a half);
  • Curriculum Vitae analysis (academic, research and professional activities) weighing 4.5 (four and a half);
  • Time since they completed the Master´s degree with weight 1 (one).

If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question.

Candidates who receive grade 6 or higher are considered approved on the program.

Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Doctor of Philosophy in Statistics"

 

Direct Doctorate

The Master´s course is open to candidates holding a Bachelor´s degree.

Admission is by a selection process based on:

  • Analysis of academic education (undergraduate record) with weight 6 (six);
  • Curriculum Vitae analysis (academic, research and professional activities) weighing 4 (four);
  • If any of the items is not met, the candidate will receive grade zero in the corresponding question.

Candidates who receive grade 8 or higher are considered approved on the program.

Future graduates of this program will be awarded the title of "Doctor of Philosophy in Statistics"

The selection process is coordinated by the Program Coordinating Committee (CCP-MECAI). The public notice and information on registration and enrolment are posted on the following website: http://icmc.usp.br/pos-graduacao/pipges/ingresso.
