Many science students are at the crossroad of knowing best courses to study at the university. A wrong decision makes in life will always affect ones’ destination in life.
I have decided to list all courses that are best for any science student based on job employability, career path, and the opportunity those courses present for you to make an impact in life.
These courses are professional courses, and you can’t regret studying any of them at the University.
10 Best Courses for Science Students
- Computer science
One of the reasons this course top my list is because of the age we are at present – Information Technology age. It is a four-year course at the university where you will be taught a programming language, Networking, Database management, etc.
Being a professional in two or three areas in this field will make you a hot cake in the labor market.
We are in an era where data scientist or Data analyst is a hot cake. To be a data analyst, you must have studied Statistics or computer science in school. Most industries work with data, and that is why there will always be a place for a data scientist.
- Medicine and Surgery
Presently in Nigeria, the number of medical practitioners is low to cater to over 160 million population of this country. It, therefore, means that more hands are needed in this field.
Furthermore, health is one of the areas of interest in this country and the world at large. People can’t play with their health because health is wealth.
It is a six-year course with an additional one year of house job.
- Energy-related course
The courses that fall under this include Energy Management, Renewable Energy, Engineering, Renewable Energy and, Environmental Modeling, Energy Law and Policy, Energy and the Environment, Renewable energy & Clean Technology, Sustainable energy technologies, Energy and sustainability with electrical power engineering, etc.
Most of the above courses are not studied in Nigeria.
- Electrical Electronics Engineering or Physics Electronics (option in Instrumentation)
Electrical/Electronics Engineering is a five-year course while Physics Electronics is a four-year course for University that awards B.Sc. This course is a good course to study because all industries need instrumentation expert.
In as much as this country depends on crude oil for its economy, a Geologist/Geophysicist will be relevant.
- Chemical Engineering
The truth is that if you study this course as a science student, your chances of getting a good job is high.
- Industrial Chemistry
It is pertinent that you check whether your passion aligns with any of the best course shown above before you go ahead to study any of them.
