With a view to contributing to the national big data strategy and pushing forward the double first-class disciplinary construction, the School of Statistics and Data Science, Nankai University was established in May 2018, on the basis of the former Statistics Research Institute.
The statistics discipline of Nankai University evolved out of the specialty of probability theory and mathematical statistics, which was founded by Wang Zikun and Hu Guoding in the 1950s. In 1981, Probability Statistics of Nankai University became one of the first doctoral programs in the country, and was rated as a national second-level key discipline in 1988, 2002, and 2007. In 2011, after statistics was adjusted into a first-level discipline by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council, Nankai Statistics was authorized to grant doctoral degrees in the first-level discipline of statistics, and ranked fourth in the national assessment in 2012. In 2017, it was included in the list of disciplines for double first-class construction in China. In the same year, it was ranked the third (A) in the fourth round of national discipline assessment.
The college has 1 member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), 1 member of TWAS (The World Academy of Sciences for the Advancement of Science in Developing Countries), 3 Chang Jiang professors of the Ministry of Education, 1 scientific and technological innovation leading researcher of the national “Ten Thousand Talent Program”, 2 experts receiving the special allowance of the State Council, 1 young and middle-aged scientific and technological innovation leading researcher of the Ministry of Science and Technology, 1 young top-notch talent of the nation, 2 outstanding talents of the new century; 1 member of the Statistics Discipline Panel of the Academic Committee of the State Council, 1 member of the National Statistics Expert Advisory Committee, 1 member of the Statistics Teaching Supervisory Committee of the Ministry of Education, 1 member of the National Master Degree Education Supervisory Committee for Applied Statistics, 1 supervisor of one of the top 100 excellent doctoral dissertations in the nation, 4 of the hundred young discipline leading researchers of Nankai University.
