Plan Your Career In Science

Science can be defined as as the systematic study and investigation of natural phenomena and occurrences. This investigation is pursued by way of observation, theoretical explanation as well as experimentation. 

A scientific study of any phenomena involves careful observation, formulation of hypotheses, conducting experiments to test and prove the hypotheses and henceforth drawing conclusions that confirm or deny the hypothetical assumption. Such scientific studies help in the formulation of universal laws that help humans to know more about the world we live in and how various natural processes and phenomena occur.

Science is a vast field and concerns almost everything that our eyes can see or cannot see. Ranging from popular pure sciences courses such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology etc. to the lesser known ones such as Photonics and Molecular Biology, everything in the universe can be studied under the field of science.

The only driving force in the study of any science is a keen interest in the subject. Otherwise, it would all be monotonous and dreary.

So, consider all options and make your choice wisely.

Plan Your Career In Medical

Irrespective of the specialisation you opt for, a career in Medical stream continues to be one of the most sought after professions. Also, it is one of the most respectable and reputed careers, particularly in India.

However, do not fall into a Medical career because you have done well in the sciences. Wanting to help others and enjoying helping others are necessary attributes in this profession and this is something which is inherent and cannot be taught. So, one needs to be sure that they are really passionate about becoming a doctor.

Also, becoming a doctor takes time. So if you feel that you are the perfect blend of patience, perseverance and intelligence, take a look at the options below to decide what specialization attracts your interest.

Plan Your Career In ENGINEERING

The origins of engineering can be traced to ancient times to the period when humans devised fundamental inventions such as the pulley, lever, and wheel. Each of these inventions is consistent with the modern definition of engineering, exploiting basic mechanical principles to develop useful tools and objects. 
In simple terms, engineering is the science of acquiring and applying scientific and practical knowledge to build new structures, machines and systems. Engineering is an umbrella term which encompasses a range of more specialized sub disciplines, each with a more specific emphasis on certain fields of application.
In India, engineering has been the most popular career option for both students and parents alike. Since even a graduate level degree in Engineering guarantees decent monetary returns, it is understandable why the masses opt for engineering as a career in this country. Also, no matter whether the economy is booming or suffering recession, there is no dearth of employment opportunities for engineers. If one has a penchant for problem solving and enjoys studying Mathematics and Science, a career in engineering is a lucrative career choice.
