Science At a glance

Science is an enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the world. It is a protean field with ever changing principles and theories that keeps bobbing out with time as a result of myriad developments and discoveries.    As science involves an in-depth study and practice, a critical discernment of the area of specialization is vital at the beginning of one's career (after 10th).   Course Details Depending on the streams chosen at 10+2 level, one can opt for undergraduate degree/diploma courses in...

Agricultural Science

Though modernization and technological advancements have been on the go for the past few decades in India, agriculture still remains the numero uno occupation, offering employment to more than two third of the labor force in the country. Agricultural sector contributes 20% GDP(gross domestic product) to the Indian economy and is widely acknowledged as the 'backbone of our economy'. In fact, the giant leap in technology has worked in favor of this field significantly, contributing to the increase in India's productivity and quality and thereby, proliferation of exports. As a result, there is an...

Aquatic Science

Aquatic Science is the multidisciplinary study of aquatic systems, encompassing both freshwater and marine systems. It deals with the human impact on and interaction with aquatic systems from the molecular level of contaminants to the stresses on entire ecosystems. In a planet where water covers roughly three-quarters of the total surface, an Aquatic Science course is no moth in comparison to the other fields of study. The Indian peninsula boasts of rich water resources, brimming with exotic plants and animals, waiting to be explored. Along with it, the robust growth in fishing industry...

Astronomy

Astronomy, in simple terms, is the study of heavenly bodies and their motions, forms, dimensions, masses, the effects they produce upon one another, their physical conditions and probably their history and future developments. Though it is one of the oldest branches of science, the arrival of sophisticated technological equipments has adorned this field, intriguing the current crop of students to pursue this field. This branch is further divided into Astrophysics, Astrometeorology, Astrobiology, Astrogeology, Astrometry, Cosmology etc. Courses & Eligibility: A student can opt for...

Biochemistry

Biochemistry, also known as biological chemistry , is the study of chemical processes in living organisms, including, but not limited to, living matter. Biochemistry governs all living organisms and living processes. Advancement in modern medical science has lead to simultaneous growth of this field and is now preferred by a good number of students. A biochemist does a close study about the structures and functions of enzymes, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and other numerous processes related to metabolism of the mankind. Researching skills are mandatory in this field. Some prerequisites...

Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is the process of gathering, storing, analyzing and merging biological data using computer technologies to improve the quality of life of individuals. In other words, Bioinformatics is the amalgamation of computer science, biology, genetics, mathematics and other medical specialties. The role of a professional involves studying the risk factors that lead to the development of a disease. They also analyze clinical trails of new medicines before they are released into the market. Due to the sudden increase in health complications and unprecedented diseases Bio-informatics...

Biostatistics

Biostatistics, in simple terms, is the application of statistics to a wide range of topics in biology. Often called as biometry or biometrics, it deals with the application of statistical methods and techniques for the purpose of data collection, data management and data analysis related to living organisms and biological systems. The role of a Biostatistician is to identifying and assess the risk factors that lead to the development of a disease . Research problems include the study of factors affecting heart and lung disease, testing new drugs to combat AIDS, assessing indoor air quality in...

Earth Science

Earth Science is the study of the Earth and its neighbors in space. It is an exciting science with many interesting and practical applications. Earth scientists use their knowledge about Earth processes such as human activity, natural disasters, changing conditions, availability of resources etc and formulate methods to protect the people and the planet. The aura of today's world is filled with enormous threats due to increased natural calamities and the disheveled state of humans who seem to have lost control. While the environmentalist have already pressed the panic button, there's a no...

Electronics

Electronics is the branch of science and technology that deals with the study of flow and control of electrons (electricity) and the study of their behavior and effects in vacuums, gases, and semiconductors, and with devices using such electrons. All applications of electronics involve the transmission of either information or power. Electronic science is completely theory based while the same engineering course involves practical applications like designing and constructing electronic circuits etc. Most of the gadgets and electrical equipments that we use in our day-to-day life have strong...

Geology

Geology is a branch of science that deals about the earth's origin, environment, minerals, history, surroundings et al. Professionals in this field are called as Geologist who play a vital role in exploring mineral wealth and natural resources. Geologist determines the quality of soil by conducting geo-chemical/geo-physical tests and explores natural resources deep in the sea. Their reports on density of earth helps in constructing roads, dams, bridges and underground tunnels . Owing to the availability of diverse natural resources and modernization which has lead to infrastructural...
