Career call

Posted on Monday, December 12, 2016

Savinder Singh, physics lecturer, Govt Model Senior Secondary School, Chandigarh, speaks to Garima Sharma on the technology- and medicine-related careers science students can pursue after completing class XII

Science students have a number of fields to consider after class XII. They can opt for the traditional medicine or engineering stream or venture into fields such as law, commerce or the humanities.
Engineering offers a number of branches like computer science and IT, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. Apart from the traditional specialisations, degrees in aerospace, environment engineering, applied engineering, nuclear engineering and ocean engineering are becoming popular. For those who do not wish to take up engineering but are interested in studying technology, a BSc in computer application, web designing, animation, fashion technology, etc, are possible options. 
With the expansion of the healthcare sector, endless career opportunities are opening in the medical stream. The most obvious option for a student interested in medicine is an MBBS degree. Those who have completed class XII with physics, chemistry and biology are eligible to apply for entry to a BSc programme in microbiology, biochemistry, biotechnology, forensic science and medical microbiology. Students interested in animal husbandry and veterinary science can enrol for the BVSc programme. They can also pursue a BSc in paramedical and allied fields including nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, audiology, speech therapy, medical lab technology, optometry, nutrition and dietetics, pharmacy, etc.
