With changing times and the advancement of requirements in businesses, there are many other relevant courses that have evolved with time.

Below mentioned are the top ten courses which a student with science subjects in their 10+2 can choose from depending on their aptitude and interests.

1. Medicine

There is a huge number of students who apply for the medical field each year in India.

Mechanical, Electronics and Communication, Computer Science and Engineering Science were the basic four types of Engineering specialisations that were available previously for the students to choose from.

However, with the introduction of science and updated technologies, engineering has been split into several branches and also sub-branches.

One such popular branch these days is “Computer Engineering” and “Electronic Engineering.”

However, during the earlier period, multiple different new fields of engineering have come up for the students, mainly because of the advancement of electronics and advent of internet such as the Internet of Things (IoT engineering), Instrumentation engineering, Robotics, etc.
