Frequently Asked Questions

 A Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree is considered to be superior to a Bachelor of Science degree.

Both are equally competent and have equally lucrative career opportunities or research options. Engineering concentrates more on the application sector via B.Sc concentrates on the theory of the phenomenon.

There are a large number of B.Sc courses which you can choose to pursue depending on your interest area like Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Physiology among others.
