Research in statistics at MIT covers a wide range of topics, including machine learning, inference and estimation, finance, and econometrics. While statistics can be found in many departments, much of the research in statistics at MIT takes place at the Operations Research Center (ORC) and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).
Prospective graduate students interested in studying applied statistics at MIT will probably find either the ORC or EECS to be the most appropriate program. There are many opportunities for graduate students to pursue research in applied statistics at MIT, as well as a wide selection of useful classes.
