When it comes to professional courses after 12th science, the most favorite choice among Indian students are- Engineering and MBBS. Engineering especially has seen an increase in the number of aspirants in the recent years. That event leads to a question- has B Sc (Bachelor of Science) lost its sheen? To be honest, yes, it has lost some of its sheen. The main factor behind it is the fact that many private Engineering colleges have opened up, increasing the number of seats. This has enabled students to opt for Engineering rather than B Sc. And remember that Engineering is treated as a better course than B Sc! Also, job prospects for B Sc graduates have dried up to an extent these days. Even if many of them land jobs, they are often low paying jobs! But let me tell you again that B Sc still is a good course to do after 12th. All you need to do is to select good, less saturated courses, which will help you get good jobs easily. Here is one such list of job oriented B Sc courses-
B Sc courses that guarantee good jobs after graduation-
In this list, you will find a typical pattern. The courses mentioned in this list are non saturated or less saturated. It means that relatively less number of students opts for these courses. This means that competition in the job market is remarkably less. It also means that the demand and supply gap of qualified professionals is not filled up! As a result, graduates having completed these courses will get good jobs relatively easily!
Another trait of this list is that you won’t find already famous and much chosen B Sc courses. For example, I’m not mentioning common B Sc courses like Computer Science, B Sc Nursing etc. Sure, they do have excellent job scope and all, upon pursuing from good colleges. But then everyone is aware of those courses. I’m about to mention less known ones. Many of them, which I’m about to mention, are related to agriculture field! Let’s start the list-
#1 B Sc Agriculture
Related to all stuff agricultural! Aim of this course is to take to agriculture from a scientific point of view, learning more about agriculture systematically, so that productivity can be improved.
#2 B Sc Horticulture
Horticulture deals with plant cultivation and its related aspects. This course is all about studying this field scientifically, aiming to use science to make the whole process much more productive.
#3 B V Sc (Veterinary Science)
In common man’s terms, it is all about becoming animals’ Doctor! Looking from a scientific point of view, this course deals with training a person to diagnose and treat the diseases that affects animals.
A course that is overlooked by many students. But they surely are ignoring the true potential of this course. Job opportunities in the Government sector is mouthwatering, when it comes to this particular course.
#5 B Sc Biotechnology

This field is related to the study of chemicals and processes, that are directly related to living organisms. Just like the previous entry, this course also promises a good job in the research sector, if a student goes on to successfully complete B Sc and M Sc in the said field.
#7 B Sc Microbiology

# B Sc Nursing (update)
In Healthcare sector, the demand for well trained and qualified nurses is huge! The demand is increasing with time, but the supply, the number of qualified nurses graduating each year, is not satisfying this demand! In short, qualified nurses are well valued and are rewarded well for their service!
