Description: The Doctoral Studies “Statistics and Optimisation” started being taught within the frame of the Royal Decree 778/1998 and obtained a Quality Mention. The doctoral programme has been followed up within the framework of the Royal Decree 1393/2007 and has obtained the Mention towards the Excellence for the academic years from 2011-2012 to 2013-2014. The existence of a doctoral programme in Statistics and Optimisation was mainly prompted by the social need of the incorporation of well educated professionals with research competencies to develop new methods and adapt those existing to novel environments in companies, researching centres and public institutions. The increasing demand in the use of each time more sophisticated methods, particularly in fields such as science, economy, industry, and administration, demands from the university the training of experienced doctors able to interacting in multidisciplinary fields.
