India's top 10 Science colleges

Posted By:

The choice of subjects, be it Science or Arts, may vary between universities. For example, an economics degree may be given as a B.A. by one university, but as B.Sc. by another. Biology, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Social Science, Sport/Exercise Science, General Science, Earth Science, Computer Science and the other fields of Engineering are almost considered under sciences, universally.

Ideally, a student is expected to be comprehensive in these aspects, before enrolling oneself to the course: a. why he or she wants to pursue that career, b. how he or she would be successful in that career, c. find out the institutes of related courses, d. try to gather information about the career options and, e. test his/her aptitude to appear in the Entrance Exams.

A student can pursue Bachelor of Science degree (B.Sc) by taking any science subject as the major subject. Numerous colleges offer specialisation in major subjects such as Chemistry, Mathematics, Zoology, Botany, Geology, Physics etc.

One can go further and opt for Masters degree (M.Sc) in their selected subjects, after completion of graduation. For further education, a student can do Ph.D degree on their particular subjects.

Some alluring job options after doing B. Sc or M.Sc are- Teachers/Professors (college/university), Scientists, Geologists, Chemists, Mathematicians, Physicists etc.

Below are some slides with little information on Top 10 Science Colleges across India.
