Changing and diverse fields in the recent times have provided new opportunities and are setting up innovative criteria for the science students. Now the options for them are not limited till and has seen the enhancement of various fields where the technicality and deep theoretical or practical knowledge of science is required. No matter what choice of subjects is chosen by the student, for both PCM (Physics, chemistry, math) and PCB (physics, chemistry, biology) job opportunities have been going strong.

List of Courses to do After 12th Science Non-Medical (PCM)

Courses to do after 12th
Courses to do after 12th


After school, candidates can go for pure engineering courses consisting branches of technical, mechanical, civil, aeronautical, electronical etc. Competitive exam like UPTECH, AIEEE or independent exam held by Joint Admission Board for the admission in in IIT’s are among the most prestigious exam at national level. The course duration is 4 years and admissions are held every year with students applying in large numbers. Both government and private universities offer engineering courses, so for students who are not able to score well in these competitive exams for them options of well reputed private universities for pursuing is always available.

Advantage of the course: Apart from getting the guaranteed job placement this course also provides options for higher research if one wants to venture in teaching field and desires to become a college lecturer by pursuing M.Tech/M.E. Various government projects also demands pure engineering graduates further opening options of working for well reputed companies. Growing technical demand has also led to the outsourcing of candidates to MNC’s abroad.

B.SC. (Bachelor in Science)

B.Sc. comes as the next best option for the science students offering plenty of fields where they can explore their interest and not get bind by raw engineering. It’s a 3 year course and is widely offered by different universities with specialization in areas like computer science, nautical science, Forestry, IT, Hotel Management, Electronics, Aviation, Animation and Multimedia. Students can explore their diverse fields and further pursue their career in respective areas.

Advantage of the course: Candidates always have the option to go for P.G. course- M.SC which lasts for 2 years.

Advantage of the course: Not providing with various employment opportunities, aviation course limits itself with a job as commercial pilot in private or Nationalized Airline companies. Government Aviation Training Institute is the best flight training school amongst all the other training institutes.

Diploma Course in fire safety and Technology

This is a diploma course which could be opted by Mathematics students directly after their 12th exam and where the job assurance could be gained after the completion of the course. Both diploma and certificate course is offered by various private institutes. The time duration is usually to be 1 to 3 years but varies from one institute to another.

Advantage of the Course: This job oriented course provides opportunities in both government and private sector.

Posts vary from Electro-technical officer to deck officer. Based on the job post, number of courses are available too like B.E. Harbor and ocean engineering, B.Sc. Marine Catering, B.E. Marine Engineering, B.Sc. Nautical Science, B.E. Naval Architecture and offshore engineering and various other courses. For sailor other diploma and engineering courses are also available.

Different Courses from Other Fields

Diploma Courses

For those who wants to see what else other fields offer there is a variety out there and for those who wanted to be in engineering but didn’t get through there are diploma courses in engineering for them too.

Teaching Courses

Some of the options under this are B.El.Ed, Primary teaching training course, and diploma in elementary education. Bachelor of physical education. B.Ed. could also be pursued but graduation as a minimum eligibility is required.

Designing Courses

Under this fashion designing and interior designing can be pursued. Though both are very different for the people from science background so develop career in this you have to be peculiarly interested in both the fields. It is a well choice for students who have good command over designing and have a creative bent.

Management Courses

The Mathematical aptitude could be very much utilized over here. Management is also one of the highlighted course among the science students due to the similarity of subject to some extent and also the assurance of good job right after completing the degree. Science students accomplish well in this field because of their concrete, strategic and analytic approach.

Performing Arts

For those with the brilliant expressions, diverse attitude, outgoing personality and who wants experiment something entirely different from their usual course performing arts is for them.
