Science is the bogeyman stream for all kids, the one picked by that one cousin your mom keeps harping about. Science gets a bad rap from those who claim that they are not “math people”, as if there could ever be such a thing. Today, picking science as your stream after 10th can result not only in the much vaunted career in the IT sector, but also to a whole bunch of very lucrative and satisfactory careers.

For the 10+2 grades in Science, Physics and Chemistry (along with English and another language as secondary subjects), are the standard core subjects. However, you can choose between Mathematics or Biology as your third core subject. Many schools these days are also offering Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology together (MBPC), which, if you don’t mind the work, is a way to make the most of the newest and the best career options in science and technology out there. Did you know that the absolute forefront of biological research today combines plant cell research with quantum mechanics?

Your Degree options, as usual, are innumerable, with Degrees in Technology, Medicine, Architecture, and several other options requiring you to attempt University-specific entrance exams apart from clearing grades 10+2 with a requisite percentage. Some of the top engineering colleges in India today provide exciting interdisciplinary programmes for which the aforementioned MBPC

Some of these degree programs are listed below.

M.S. or M.Tech. are generally the most sought after Master’s programmes upon graduating in most of the aforementioned programmes. However, a lot of people are opting to do MBAs due to job saturation in the IT industry. You can also get into research, or become an entrepreneur. You can also choose to do any number of other programmes that do not require you to have a specific degree or specialization. The job market as it is when you have just completed your 10th should not be the metric with which you decide your career.

The top engineering colleges in India are:

Apart from these stellar institutions, engineering colleges in Pune, such as Symbiosis Institute of Technology, DPCOE, BSIOTR and others, fully earn the historic educational centre’s reputation for it. Bangalore is another vaunted educational hubs, and some of the best engineering colleges in Bangalore include Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE), People's Education Society Institute of Technology (PESIT), and BMS College of Engineering (BMSCE).
