Bachelor of Science or B.Sc. in Electronics is an undergraduate course which introduces students to the fundamentals of electrical circuits such as transistors, vacuum tubes, integrated circuits and diodes. It is a 3 year course and is divided in 6 semesters.
B.Sc. Electronics is a field of science and technology that studies the controlled movement of electrons through various media and vacuum. The basic eligibility for admission to the course is a 10+2 with science subjects including physics, chemistry, and biology.
The average tuition fee for B.Sc. Chemistry in government aided college ranges from 10,000 INR to 20,000 INR for three years. For private institutions, the fee may be as high as 1.5 Lakh INR.
Once the course is over, a B.Sc. graduate can seek employment in various public and private sector. Some of the job designations which are ideal for a B.Sc. Chemistry graduate are Service engineer, Software analyst, Senior sales manager, Electronics and Communication Consultant, etc. The initial salary in these positions in the government organizations varies from 10,000 INR to 32,000 INR per month and in the private sector the package after B.Sc. Electronics varies from 3,50,000 INR to 4,00,000 INR per annum.
B.Sc. Electronics is a specialized course for students who wish to learn the fundamentals of electronics. This course prepares a student for challenges in the electronics and communication industry as it demands good analytical and communication skills.
The subjects typically studied under this degree are Engineering materials, Digital electronics, Analog electronics, Data structure, Programming languages, Quantum mechanics, Mathematics, Statistics, Network analysis, Fundamentals of electronics, and electromagnetic.
The people interested in manufacturing and designing electric components and devices should opt for the course as it needs an inventive and creative mind. Those candidates who have an eye for detail, analytical skills, communication skills, ability to work as a part of a team are suitable for this course.
This course is also ideal for students who want to take up a job as a lecturer or a professor in both private as well government colleges.
The course is of three years duration, with two semesters in each year, making it a total of 6 semesters.
For distance programs the minimum duration is 3 years and maximum duration is 6 years during which a student needs to fulfill the requirements of the course. Universities like Annamalai University provide the course in distance mode.
After B.Sc. Chemistry, a student can opt for many Post-graduate courses available in India such as :

The minimum eligibility for admission to B.Sc. Electronics course is a pass in 10+2 from a recognized board with physics, chemistry and biology as their subjects.
Most colleges require to have above 55% marks in 10+2 such as Manipal University.
Admission to B.Sc. Chemistry to a majority of colleges in India is merit-based. However, a few universities such as GITAM University conducts GSAT for admission to the program.
Colleges which follow merit-based admission process, generally release a cut off percentage for admission to the program. The admission forms are available in the month of May/June after the results for 10+2 are declared. Universities like University of Delhi release a central cut off list for affiliated colleges. Students who fulfill the cut-off criteria are then granted admission in the respective colleges.
The forms for entrance examinations are also available in the months of May and June and the exam is ideally conducted in the month of June. The entrance test is of 2-3 hours duration and contains objective type questions from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English. Students are assessed on the basis of their performance in the entrance test and marks scored in 10+2 examination.
