Accountancy Courses In India

Accountancy - Chartered Accountancy
The pattern of training for the Chartered Acountancy course has been revised with effect from October 2001. Instead of the Foundation and Intermediate examinations, we now have the Professional Education-I and Professional Education-II examinations. The papers and syllabi also stand revised and updated in tune with the emerging trends. The new pattern is as follows:

1.Fundamentals of Accounting
2.Mathematics and Statistics
4.Business Communication and Organisation and Management

PE - II Group I
3.Business and Corporate Laws

Group II
1.Fundamentals of Financial Management and Costing
2.Income Tax and Central Sales Tax
3.Information Technology

Final Examination : Group I
1.Advanced Accounting
2.Advanced Financial Management
3.AdvancedAdvanced Auditing
4.Corporate Laws and Secretarial Practice

Group II
1.Cost Management
2.Management Information and Control System
3.Direct Taxes
4.Indirect Taxes

After the Plus Two stage, students can launch their PE programme comprising two parts that can be covered in nearly two years. Those who have a university degree with the prescribed minimum marks can however skip the PEI hurdle and directly join the PE II level training.

During the last six months of the practical training or thereafter, students can appear for the final examination. After passing the final examination, candidates have to undergo a short programme on General Management and Communication Skills. A brilliant and hard-working student can complete the programme in a total period of five years, become an Associate Member, obtain a Certificate of Practice and enjoy all the privileges and prerogatives of a chartered accountant.

There is no objection in undergoing a regular academic programme in a college during his preparation for the PE courses.

Aerospace Engineering Courses In India
Aerospace Engineering

An aerospace engineer builds light air vehicles. There is need no to feel that the task is beyond one's capabilities. More than special skills, what one needs is a fascination for aircrafts and their working. An engineering degree is a prerequisite for studying aerospace engineering.

Career prospects

Aerospace engineers can be employed with DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation), HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) or NAL (National Aeronautical Laboratories). For brighter career prospects, a Ph.D. is a must. After completing a degree course in Mechanical Engineering from IIT, you can do the Masters' in Aerospace Engineering and Ph.D.abroad. There are greater job opportunities for aerospace engineers, with many private companies entering the field of aircrafts and defence vehicles manufacturing. The sky is the limit.

Airlines Courses In India

It is generally thought that the job of an airhostess is very glamorous and exciting, as it includes flying and travelling. However, becoming one means you need to be in the air and on your toes all the time. Broadly, jobs in this industry can be categorised into two groups: ground personnel and flight personnel. Aircraft maintenance engineering is still a low profile career, as flying is normally associated with being a pilot or an airhostess. The engineers ensure the smooth running of the aircraft.

Career prospects

In the process of luring more people to spend more on air travel, airline operators are not only going to increase their infrastructure but also trying to extend efficient quality service. This is likely to open up a variety of job opportunities for people eyeing this glamorous world of flying. There is a lot of scope for growth even for aircraft engineers, but with changing technologies you need to be up-to-date with the latest in your field

It is not easy to precisely define the boundary of chemical sciences (or simply chemistry), because the discipline lies along the spectrum between physics on the one hand and biology on the other. It overlaps and permeates both of these sciences to such an extent that at the interface there is in fact, no clear distinction between them. An idea about the vastness of the subject can be had from the contents pages of the Chemical Abstracts (1907), the world’s most complete guide to chemical literature published by the American Chemical Society.

Its 80 sections are arranged in five broad groupings labelled as Biochemistry (Sections 1-20), Organic Chemistry (21-34), Macromolecular Chemistry (35-46), Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (47-64), Physical, Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry (65-80). Such hybrid names as medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, agricultural chemistry, environmental chemistry, geochemistry, fuel chemistry, petroleum chemistry attest to the wide spread usefulness of chemistry and its close links with other fields of sciences and applied technology. Nevertheless, chemistry may be defined as a subject which is concerned with synthesis, prosperities and reaction of molecules (i.e., the combination of atoms) and the chemistry is the most utilitarian of all sciences which has lent its name to a major segment of the manufacturing industry called chemical industry.

Of all the sciences, it has the closest link to the world of economics and business. It is only in recent times that electronics have found their way into this regime. The application of chemistry for productive purposes has given rise to an engineering discipline called Chemical Engineering. To begin with, it was described as a branch of applied chemistry, because it looked into the special needs of large scale manufacturing of chemical products. Later, it developed into a distinct and unified discipline drawing upon the principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics and mechanical and electrical engineering discipline with roots in chemistry.

As a subject of study, Applied Chemistry (or its variant form, Industrial Chemistry) is taught in the Science Faculties of universities. Chemical Engineering and Chemical Technology, on the other hand, are dealt with in the Engineering Faculties. This explains the interchangeable award nomenclatures – viz., Bachelor of Engineering (BE) and Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech).

Educational Opportunities

Chemistry as one of the subjects is offered at the B.Sc. level. Many universities also offer B.Sc. honors degree in chemistry. A small number of universities, in addition to chemistry as a general subject, have introduced several sub-fields of chemistry, such as Agrochemical, Textile Chemistry and Geochemistry as one of the combinations at the B.Sc level. In Tamil Nadu several colleges, which have introduced Application Oriented Courses within the curriculum structure of B.Sc, offers as many as six sub-fields of chemistry as combinations – viz., Agricultural Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Dye Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry. Students may opt for not more than two of these subjects.

At the postgraduate level, more than two of these subjects. Indian Institutes of Technology at Chennai, Delhi, Kanpur and Mumbai offer Chemistry. ThePondicheriUniversity has introduced a five-year integrated M.Sc programme in sciences open to 10+2 passed candidates. First five semesters are common for all the three subjects, viz., Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Students can then opt for one of the subjects for the subsequent six semesters. Besides, a number of universities have introduced at the postgraduate level such specialized courses as Analytical Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry.

Postgraduate diplomas of one-year duration in related subjects are offered by some universities, e.g., Analytical Chemistry – SNDT Women’s University (Mumbai), University of Mumbai; Industrial Chemistry – University of Pune, Sardar patel University (Gujarat), Textile Chemistry-Jai Narain Vyas University (Jodhpur), MS University of Baroda.

Pre-doctoral and doctoral courses are available in most of the universities which offer M.Sc (Chemistry) course. Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) has an integrated PhD programme in Chemical Science. Candidates possessing B.Sc degree with chemistry or biochemistry as one of the subjects at the B.Sc level and mathematics or chemistry or physics at the 10+2 level are eligible for the course.

A number of research institutions including those under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), such as, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (Hyderabad), National Chemical Laboratory (Pune), Central Leather Research Institute (Chennai) are recognized university centres for pursuing doctoral research. Candidates possessing valid UGC-CSIR NET scores can take advantage of this facility as Junior Research Fellows.

Career Opportunities

Chemistry considered as the "mother" science offers a wide range of career opportunities in such diverse areas as teaching, research, chemical and related industries, consultancy and entrepreneurship. Entering the teaching profession needs valid UGC-CSIR NET score or State Level Eligibility Test (SLET) score. As stated earlier, UGC-CSIR NET score is also a passport to research career although those who do not need such financial supports can also pursue research work. Persons with industrial experience can either opt for consultancy, advising others on how to set up chemical industries or can themselves enter into the venture.

Chromotherapy Courses In India
The word 'chromo' is derived from Greek, which means 'color' . The word 'therapy' means 'curative treatment'. The term chromotherapy literally means curative treatment by means ofcolours. Chromotherapy is also known as chromopathy is also known as chromopathy, colour therapy, light therapy, Heliotherapy or colourology.

Chromotherapy or colour therapy is one of the alternative systems of medicine based on seven colours ( Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red, abbreviated as VIBGYOR) of the solar spetrum or colour spectrum.It is a method of treatment of diseases / disorders using colours. According to this system, the cause of any disease / disorder could be traced to the lack of a particular colour in human system and the imbalance could be restored by means of applying colour.

Colour And Their Healing Properties :

Colour therapy is best used as a supportive therapy along with other natural methods such as proper diet, adequate rest and relaxation, exercise, yogic asanas and so on. It is often combined with hydrotherapy and aromatherapy.

Those who practice colour therapy often relate the seven colours of the colour spectrum to seven specific areas of the human body known as the chakras. The chakras are believed as the specific spiritual energy centres of the body. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for 'wheel' Each of the seven colours of the spectrum and its associated specific healing properties or therapeutic effects and the corresponding chakra in the body (with its positions) are discussed hereunder in brief.


In colour therapy, violet colour is associated with one of the seven chakras located at the top portion of the head. Violet is considered as the colour of emotions and meditative ( thoughtfulness). It promotes enlightenment. Colour therapists use violet to soothe (calm/ease) organs, to relax muscles, and to claim the nervous system. A person with an excess of Violet colour will express fanaticism and domination.

Indigo :

The colour Indigo is linked with one of the chakras seated at the lower part of the forehead. Indigo is believed to have cooling and calming effects. It is applied in health treatment for eyes, ears and nose and mental problems. It is also used to treat addiction. A person with an excess of the colour Indigo will experience corruption, pride and arrogance.

Blue :

Blue colour is connected with one of the chakras positioned in the throat region. Blue is the colour of peace and infinity. it promotes communication and knowledge. The colour blue is said to have a very positive effect on all kinds of pain conditions. it eliminates toxins, and is used to treat liver disorders and jaundice. Excess of Blue colour in a person will bring about doubt, distrust, apathy, and melancholy.

Green :

Green colour is coupled with one of the chakras situated near the heart region. Since it is located in the middle of the colour spectrum, green colour is associated with a harmorizing (balance) effect. Colour therapists use this colour to treat bronchitis, whooping cough, inflammations of thejoints and swellings. A person with an excess of green colour will experience lethargy, lack of motivation, insecurity and jealousy

Yellow :

Yellow colour is concerned with one of the chakras sited at the solar plexus region. Yellow is the brightest of the colours that are commonly used in colour therapy. It balances he adrenal glands, heals skin troubles, and hels diabetes. it also purifies blood, helps digestion, and has a cleansing effect. A person with an excess of yellow colour will express lack of concentraion, malice and deviousness.

Orange :

Orange colour is pertaining to one of the chakras spotted near the pelvis / groin area. Orange symbolizes the rising Sun. Orange being a mixture of red and yellow, according to chromotherapists orange stands for kind-heartedness and warm-heartedness of an individual. It is beneficial in the treatment of kidney and gallstones, hernia and appendicitis. A person with an excess of orange colour will express confusion, tiredness and pessimism.

Red :

Red colour is related to one of the seven chakras placed at the basal region of the spine. Red colour is symbolic of heat, fire and anger. It is a stimulating and energizing colour. Red has also been called the low blood pressure, rheumatism, paralysis, anaemia and tuberculosis. A person with an excess of red colour could express domination, physical cruelty, anger and vulgarity.

Academics :

To become a chromotherapist or a colour therapy practitioner, an aspirant should take a course in chromotherapy, either a diploma course ( D.G.T.C.T - Diploma in Gem-Tele-Chromo Theropy, six months or one year course ) or a Bachelor Certification course ( B.G.T.C.T - Bachelor in Gem-Tele-Chromo Therapy , a two year course) in alternative systems of medicine. Minimum eligibility to study these courses can be studied either by regular classes or through correspondence courses. Presently, thenumber of institutions offering these courses is very limited in India. However, the two major institutions, which offer Diploma / Bachelor Cetification courses in chromotherapy is given below.

2. Indian Institute of Alternative Medicines 9 The Open International University for Alternative Medicines), 80 Chowringhee Road, Kolkata - 700 020 ( West Bengal) Website :

In addition to the above mentioned courses, chromo-therapy is also taught as one of the subjects in degree course ( B.N.Y.S - Bachelor of Naturopathy & Yogic Sciences, a five and half year's course)


Dairy Technology deals with all methods of handling milk from production and consumption and includes processing, packaging, storage, transport and physical distribution. Based on the sciences of biochemistry, bacteriology, and nutrition, Dairy Technology employs the principles of engineering. Its objectives are to prevent spoilage, improve quality, increase shelf-life, and make milk palatable and safe for human consumption.

The foundation of Anand Milk Union Ltd, more well known by its acronym AMUL, in 1946 led to the development of the dairy industry and gave momentum to education in dairying. Before that, there was not even a single college offering exclusive graduate degree programme in dairying. Traditionally it was the part of veterinary and animal husbandry courses. The first dairy science college was established at the National Dairy Research Institute in Karnal (Haryana) which now offers diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dairy technology.

Educational Opportunities

At present, there are eleven dairy science colleges which offer first degree level courses leading to BTech (Dairy Technology) of BSc (Dairy Technology). Of these, National Dairy Research Institute (Karnal and Bangalore) and the Sheth MC College of Dairy Science (Anand) have been identified as centres of excellence. The Karnal and Anand colleges have established modern commercial dairies with the financial support of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB). An automated dairy plant having a capacity of one lakh litres named Vidya Dairy became operational at the Dairy Science College, Anand in 1994. All operations in this dairy are carried out by students under the supervision of dairy staff and teachers.

The Bachelor’s degree course is of four-year duration. The eligibility requirement is a pass in 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics. In most of the States the admission is made on the basis of entrance test common to other agricultural and animal science courses. There are also diploma level courses in the subject. Three well-known diploma courses leading to Indian Dairy Diploma (IDD), are offered by the Dairy Science Institute (Aaray, Mumbai), Allahabad Agricultural Institute, and the State Institute of Dairying (Haringhata, West Bengal)., NDRI (Bangalore) has a National Dairy Diploma (NDD) course of two-year duration. Many general universities now offer dairy science as vocational subject at the BSc level. Dairying is also available as a vocational subject for the 10+2 level education.

Master’s degree courses in dairy science and dairy technology are offered by 17 institutions which include several agricultural colleges, colleges of veterinary science and animal husbandry. The nomenclature of the awards varies viz., MSc (Dairy Science), MVSc (in Animal Husbandry and Dairying). Admission to postgraduate programmes in such disciplines as Dairy Chemistry, Dairy Microbiology. Quality Control is also offered by Dairy Science Colleges at Karnal and Anand which are also open to general science graduates. In the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur), Dairy Engineering is offered as part of BTech (Hons) in Agricultural and Food Engineering and MTech in Dairy and Food Engineering besides PhD in Dairy Engineering and Dairy Technology. Six universities have introduced PhD courses. Annexure 1 gives a comprehensive list of institutions offering courses at different levels.

Career Opportunities

The establishment in 1965 of the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and the promotion of the “Operation Flood” scheme by it, gave a great fillip to the dairy industry in India. The spectacular growth of the dairy industry in the last two decades had created various demands for indigenous production of dairy equipment, increased quality standards and production of varieties of milk products. This has resulted in the progressive development of dairy equipment manufacturing industry and technical consultancy organisations and have also given impetus to research and teaching. Such notable expansion of the dairy processing and related industries has opened up vast career opportunities for dairy technologists and engineers.

There are now more than 400 dairy plants in the country making various types of milk products. They need good qualified and well trained personnel to run the plants efficiently. The growth of the dairy processing industry has also encouraged the indigenisation of dairy equipment. Most requirements of the dairy industry are now met indigenously. Presently, there are over 170 dairy equipment manufacturers. Many of them undertake turnkey jobs. The industry has two distinct kinds of jobs: (1) equipment design and fabrication and plant design; and (2) project execution. These jobs can be performed by a dairy technologist with an aptitude in engineering.

The dairy technologists can also undertake consultancy work. A successful consultant, however, needs several years of working experience in dairy firms to understand the nitty gritty of the work. Besides opportunities for teaching and research, dairy technologists can start their own enterprises such as small-scale milk plants, creamery, ice-cream units. Dairy India (A – 25 Priydarshini Vihar,Delhi110092) is an excellent source of information about dairy education and industry. It is frequently updated.

Engineering And Technology

The world “engineering” derived from the Latin word “ingeniare” means “to design” or “to create”. Although the New Oxford Dictionary of English (1999) defines “engineering” as “the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines and structures” and “technology” as the “application of scientific knowledge for practical purpose, especially in industry”, to-day it is no longer possible to draw any such dividing line. This perhaps has prompted the use of the nomenclatures Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) and Master of Technology (M.Tech) along with the traditional ones, namely, Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) and Master of Engineering (M.E). The names of colleges and institutions also include such terms as “engineering” “technology” and “engineering and technology”. Whatever may be the nomenclature of the awards or the names of institutions, they encompass both “engineering” and “technology”.

Engineering education in India has a long tradition, the beginning of which goes back to the year 1847. In that year was establishes the Thomason College of Civil Engineering at Roorkee, later to become the Roorkee University (1949), the first engineering university in the country. This was followed by the establishment of the College of Engineering in Pune in 1854 which is still in existence. The Civil Engineering College in Howrah came up in 1856 to impart training to the engineering personnel of the PWD. The first degree examination in civil engineering was held in 1864. In 1921, it was renamed theBengalengineering College, which was accorded the deemed university status in 1992. In Mumbai, Victoria jubilee Technological Institute (now Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute) was set up in 1887.

Another landmark in the history of engineering education was the establishment of the National Council of Education (Calcutta) in 1908 in the wake of nationalist movement of 1905-06. It established the nucleus of an institution for imparting education in engineering and technology which in 1919, developed into theCollege of Engineering and Technology. The College, through a State Act, became the jadavpur University in 1955, a unitary university now consisting of Faculties of Arts, Science, and Engineering and Technology.

In 1909 was established the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore which owes its existence to the vision and munificence of the late J.N.Tata. It offers only postgraduate and research programmes. In 1958, it was accorded the deemed university status. Besides engineering colleges, separate colleges of technology, such as, College of Textile Technology, Serampore, West Bengal (1908), Government Central Textile Institute, Kanpur (1914), Harcourt Butler Technological Institute, Kanpur (1921) University Department of Chemical Technology, University of Bombay (1934) which now enjoys autonomous status, and Laxminarayan Institute of Technology (1942) were also established in the pre-independent days.

It was only after Independence that engineering and technological education got a great boost. The development of technical education has been one of the major achievements of the post-Independence period. The creation of the All-India Council of Technical Education in 1945, and the Report of the Scientific Manpower Committee (1947) has a far reaching influence in this development. The reports of the Engineering Personnel Committee (1956), and the Committee for Postgraduate Engineering Education and Research (1961) gave an impetus to higher level technical education.

The growth of educational facilities has been phenomenal during the last decade. The outturn of graduates in engineering doubled within a span of 10 years from about 30,000 in 1987 to 60,000 in 1996. During the same period, the outturn of polytechnic diploma holders increased from 56,560 to 95,283. A comprehensive account of the progress of technical education since Independence is available in the book Technical Education in Independent India (1947-1997) published by the All India Council of Technical Education in 1999.

Part-Time Programmes

Many universities now offer part-time programmes generally of four-year duration in different branches of engineering and technology. The programmes are open to working diploma holders or diploma holders having working experience for specified periods. Admissions are made through separate entrance tests. Part-time M.E/M.Tech programmes (five semesters) are also offered by a number of institutions.

Career Opportunities

Though there is a glut off graduates in some branches of engineering and technology leading to unemployment, the field continues to offer reasonable rewarding career opportunities to the brighter ones. What should, however be noted is that, the standard and reputation of institutions in which the candidates study have a great bearing of their success in the employment market. Products of colleges and institutions which survive on the basis of year-to-year recognition because of their inability to conform to the norms specified by the AICTE in respect of workshops, laboratories, libraries, equipment and qualified teachers, are certainly at a disadvantage in the highly competitive job market.

But choosing the right institution and branch of study having good career potentials are often, beyond the control of individuals. Those who want to enter the job market without entering the portals of engineering colleges can opt for the Special Class Railway Apprentices' Examination conducted annually by the Union Public Service Commission. The eligibility requirement is a pass in 10+2 examination with Mathematics and Physics or Chemistry. Successful completion of the apprenticeship leads to the absorption in the Indian Railway Services of Mechanical Engineers. The Department of Secondary Education and Higher Education operates the National Schemes of Apprenticeship Training among others, for engineering graduates. The Scheme, however, does not guarantee any employment after completion of the training.

Both the Central and State governments continue to be the major employers of engineers particularly in such branches as Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, and Electronics Engineering. As regards the Central Government, the Union Public Service Commission conducts an annual Engineering Services Examination for recruitment to the Group A Services and posts in various technical departments and establishments. The Services fall into four categories, viz., Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering.

The eligibility requirement is a degree in engineering or Associate Memberships of professional institutions which are recognised by the UPSC as equivalent to engineering degree. Holders of M.Sc degrees or its equivalent with Wireless Communications, Electronics, Radio Physics or Radio Engineering as special subjects of study, are acceptable only for certain services and posts.

The near demise of public sector industries, which at one point of time used to absorb a large number of engineering graduates, has considerably shrunken the scope of employment in this sector. Though the corresponding growth in the private sector is not very encouraging, it is still the best bet for engineers seeking lucrative careers.

Since it is the age of specialisation, acquisition of a postgraduate degree (M.E/M.Tech) preferably in newly emerging areas would go a long way in ensuring a satisfying career. For example, the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) offers excellent career opportunities for motivated engineering postgraduates in its different units including Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd., and Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (Kalpakkam). The activities of the Department being multi-disciplinary in nature, it needs post-graduates in several engineering branches. The Training School of the Bhaba Atomic Research Centre (Mumbai-400085) organises annual Orientation Courses for Engineering Graduates and Science Postgraduates (OCES) and Engineering Postgraduates (OCEP) of five-month duration. On successful completion of the course, candidates are appointed in any of the units of the DAE as Scientific Officers grossing about Rs.15,000.00 per month.

Teaching and research careers are no less rewarding. With the proliferation of engineering colleges and technological institutions, postgraduates and doctoral degree holders can join the teaching profession. The profession also provides learning opportunities to enrich one's knowledge base. The major scientific establishments, other than the DAE, such as the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Indian Space Research Organisation, Defence Research and Development Organisation with their vast network of research establishments offer research careers in many front line areas of engineering and technology.

Last but not the least, engineers and technologists have the option to migrate to management profession and Civil Services. Both in the prestigious management schools and civil services, there is now a visible presence of engineers and technologists. Needless to mention that successful careers in the field demand that engineers and technologists must be computer-savy.


The term Earth Science is used to describe all the sciences concerned with the origin, evolution, structure and the behaviour of the Earth and its place in the universe, especially in the solar system. The study of earth sciences may be grouped into five major categories:

1. The study of the (rocky) part of the Earth: Geology, the most well-Known of the earth sciences belongs to this category;

2. The study of the aqueous part of the Earth: Oceanography, hydrology, glaciology, limnology constitute this group;

3. The study of the gaseous outer regions of the Earth: Atmospheric science including meteorology (weather, meteorology, climatology), and aeronomy that deals with the outermost ionised part of the atmosphere fall in to this category;

4. The study of the biosphere: Biosphere embodies all life on the earth. It includes also zoology, botany and ecology which, however, are distinctive science in their own rights; and

5. The study of the Earth in its entirety:this is the domain of geography which is study of spatial variation of the earth’s surface and of humankind’s relationship with its environment. The distinctiveness of geography lies in the fact that it is the convergence of physical and biological sciences (physical geography) and social sciences, such as, history (historical geography), political science (political geography), and economics (economic geography).

A great deal of overlap, however, exists among these categories. Since the International Geophysical Year (IGY) in 1957, there is a trend toward the integration of these categories. The integration of the geo-sphere, biosphere systems is a case in point. In a way, even geology may be defined as the study of Earth itself and many components of other categories may be brought under it. Physical geology and physical geography also share many common elements

The deployment of earth-observing devices on satellites, both in geostationary and in low earth orbit, has revolutionized such branches of earth sciences as meteorology and oceanography. This has given rise to Remote Sensing, a new technology for gathering and recording of information about the terrain and ocean surfaces by means of remote sensors install in satellites. Remote sensing technology is now widely used in the survey and management of natural resources and environment. Remote Sensing has, in turn, led to the development of Geographic Information System (GIS).

The emergence of the space age has unfolded yet another perspective for earth scientists. The exploration of moon and planets has made it possible for them to understand, by comparison, the origin of the Earth and its structure and composition. Earth Sciences have also close relationship with emergence of such subjects as Geophysics, Geochemistry and Astronomy. Mining, Engineering and Mineral Exploration Technology represent the practical application of geological science (see also update).

Educational Opportunities

Though there are a small number of institutions, which offer courses in specialised branches of earth sciences, educational opportunities exist primarily in two broad fields, viz., geology and geography. It is only at the Master’s degree level that courses in specially areas are available. Courses in geology and geography are available at the first degree, postgraduate degree and research degree levels. At the first degree level, geology and geography are offered as one of the combinations by a number of universities. There are also stray examples of such topics as applied geology, biogeography, cartography, marine-geology and remote sensing offered as one of the combinations at the first degree level. TheOsmania University has introduced a three-year B.Sc.(Vocational) degree course in Geo-exploration.

A brief account of educational opportunities in ten areas viz., Earth Sciences, Geology, Geography, Oceanography, Remote Sensing, Atmospheric Sciences, Space Science, Hydrology, Cartography, and Geographic Information System (GIS) follows.

Earth Science: At the Master’s degree level, earth science as a broad subject is offered at Barkatullah University (Bhopal 482026), Indian School of Mines (Dhanbad 826004) – M.Sc.(Tech) of three-year duration in applied geology and applied geophysics, Jiwaji University (Gwalior 474011), Manipur University (Imphal 795003), Sambalpur University (Sambalput 768019), and Swamy Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University (Nanded 431606). The Indian SchoolofMines, which enjoys a deemed university status, is the premiere educational and research center in Earth Sciences.

Geology: About 60 universities offer M.Sc course in geology, while some of them have also introduced M.Phil and PhD programmes. The eligibility requirements is BSc degree with geology as one of the subjects at the first degree level. Another 25 universities offer MSc, MSc(Tech), and MTech in Applied Geology. Education in Mining needs considerable inputs from geology. Courses in mining as an engineering discipline are offered by engineering college.

Geography: Geography is offered at the Master’s degree level by more than 100 universities leading to both MA and MSc degrees. While the focus is on social science aspect of the subject (Human Geography) in MA course, the MSc course emphasis on the scientific dimension (Physical Geography). The eligibility requirements is a first degree with geography as one of the subjects. Four universities, viz., Dr Hari Singh Gour Vishwavidyalaya (Sagar 470003),KarnatakUniversity (Dharwad 580003), University of Madras (Chennai 600005), and UtkalUniversity (Bhubaneshwar 751004) offer MSc in Applied Geography.

Oceanography: Master’s degree courses in oceanography and related topics are available in (1)Alagappa University (Karaikudi 630003) – MSc (Oceanography and Coastal Area Study); (2) Andhra University (Visakhapatanam 530003) – MSc (Oceanography – Physical and Chemical); (3)Annamalai University (Annamalai Nagar 608002) – MSc (Marine Biology and Oceanography); (4)Cochin University of Science and Technology (Kochi 682022) – MSc (Oceanography); (5)University of Madras (Chennai 600005) – MSc (Ocean Life Science). The Indian Institute of Technology (Chennai 600036) conducts MTech (Ocean Engineering) course.

It may be mentioned here that considering the importance of ocean in the national economy, a separate Department of Ocean Development was created in July 1981 by the government of India for promoting ocean development activities. It has been established three institutions viz., the National Institute of Ocean Technology at Chennai for developing technology relevant to ocean sector, the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services at Hyderabad for generating ocean data products and their dissemination, and the National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research at Vasco (Goa).

Remote Sensing: Essentially, remote sensing technology involves surveying land for both in respect of its dimensions and spotting of natural resources that it bears. The aerial photography to survey the land widely used for preparing maps is the predecessor to remote sensing. The first institution for training in the use of aerial photographs was the Indian Photo Interpretation Institute, established in 1966 in Dehra Dun by the Survey of India. It has since been renamed the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) and comes under the administrative control of the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) in the Department of Space.

The Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites are the mainstay of the National Natural Resource Management Systems (NNRMS), which aims at the optimal utilisation of the country’s natural resources using remote sensing data. The IIRS is the main training institution in the use of remotely sensed data. It offers both short and long duration training programmes in various disciplines of NNRMS. How ever, the courses are open to scientists, university teachers and technical staff from the forest and the soil survey departments, water resources engineers and land use planners. It offers Junior Research Fellowships to candidates who are encouraged to undertake PhD work in Remote Sensing. The Fellow ships are open to MSc degree holders in such subjects as Forestry, Botany, Environmental Sciences, and Statistics.

Considering the importance of remote sensing, the Anna University (Chennai -600025) was the first to introduce M.Tech. (Remote Sensing) of three-semester duration, which is open to holders of BE/B.Tech, B.Sc (Agri/For/Hort), MSc (Maths/Phy/Chem) or MSc (Geology/Geography) degrees. It also offers a course in a related area leading to the award of BE (Geo-Informaitcs). Other Universities which have introduced the course are: (1) Andhra University (Visakhapatanam 530003) – MTech (Remote Sensing); (2) Barkatullah University (Bhopal 482026) – MSc(Tech) (Remote Sensing); (3) Bharatidasan University (Tiruchinarappalli 620024) - MTech (Remote Sensing) open to MSc degree holders in geography, geology or geophysics; (4) Birla Institute of Technology (Ranchi 835215) – M.Tech (Remote Sensing) open to BE and MSc degree holders; (5) Indian Institute of Technology(Mumbai 400076) – M.Tech (Remote Sensing);(6)University of Pune, Department of Space & Sciences(Pune 411007) – MSc(Remote Sensing) open to BSc degree holders in any branch of science; (7) University of Roorkee (Roorkee – 147667) – MTech (Remote Sensing and Photogrammetric Engineering); (8)Sri Venkateshwara University(Tirupathi – 517502) – MSc (Remote Sensing System Management). Bundelkhand University (Jhansi – 284128) has a PG Diploma in Remote Sensing and Geo-environment of one –year duration open to MSc/MTech(Geology) degree holders,(9)Indian Institute of Technology(Mumbai – 400075) – Postgraduate Diploma in Advance Aerial Photo-interpretation.

Cartography: Maps express information through lines, colours, shapes and other symbols of among others, places and of their geographical, topographical and geological features. Cartography is the art of drawing maps, the most familiar kinds of which are general reference maps, mobility and thematic maps. General reference maps identify and locate a variety of geographic features, such as, land features, bodies of water, and political boundaries. Maps that emphasise boundaries of districts, states or countries as a whole are called political maps. On the other hand, maps that emphasise the location of such features of Earth’s surface as mountains, rivers, lakes are known as physical maps. Mobility maps such as road maps, street maps, aeronautical charts, nautical charts are designed to help people find their way from one place to another. Thematic maps show the distribution of population, rainfall, natural resource, etc.

The Survey of India, under the Ministry of Science and Technology, is the official survey and mapping organisation. Its primary responsibility is to maintain topographical maps on different scales covering the entire country. These maps are the basis of all kinds of mapping activities. While Survey of India meets the national needs in cartography, the National Atlas and Thematic Mapping Organisation (NATMO), also under the same Ministry, cater to the requirements of thematic maps, which are based on the survey of India maps. These are also other agencies, which prepare maps on specific themes, e.g., geological maps drawn by the Geological Survey of India and forest maps by the Forest Survey of India. Thematic maps are the most widely used ones as would be evident from newspapers, newsmagazines and reports of various kinds generated by different official and non-official agencies. Cartographers are now increasingly using computers for making maps. The Geographic Information System (GIS) is now one of the most important tools available to them.

However, the number of formal courses in cartography is extremely limited. TheUniversity of Madras offers a course in M.Sc. (Cartography) of two-year duration. Diploma Courses are available in three universities, viz., (1) Osmania University – Diploma in Geographical Cartography, (2) Jamia Millia Islamia – Diploma in Cartography, open to graduates with geography as a subject and (3)MS University of Baroda – Diploma in Cartography. A Cartography related postgraduate diploma course, Advanced Aerial Photo Interpretation, is available in the Indian Institute of Technology (Mumbai).

Geographic Information System: As stated earlier, the remote sensing technology has facilitated the development of Geographic Information System (GIS). Simply stated GIS is a decision-making tool consisting of maps developed on computer. But where it goes beyond mapping is the scope it offers for the storage, manipulation and presentation of geographic information, such as, topography, political boundaries and sub-divisions within them, geology, vegetation, and food plains. GIS is emerging as an important decision-making tool for socio-economic planning. There is a great demand for highly skilled manpower in this area. Only the University of Madras offers a post-graduate diploma course in Geographic Information System Management of one-year duration.

The eligibility requirement is a degree with two years experience in cartography, MSc degree in Geology or Geography, or BE (Civil Engineering). The University has also introduced, with effect from 2000-01 academic session, a new MSc course in Spatial Information Technology at its School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. The training programmes of the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (Dehra Dun) include a Substantial component of GIS for digital image processing and spatial data analysis. One of the more well known GIS courses is offered by Pentasoft Technologies Ltd (“Taurus” 25, Colony, Chennai 600024). The course called Masters Application Programme in Geographic Information System (MAP-GIS) is of five-week duration.

Fishery Science

Hundreds of portals, vortals, dotcoms all over, the place and a new one popping up every day. Everyone and their cousin seem to be enamoured by it or rather by the moolah it offers. Is everything as rosy as it seems or is there a flipside to it? Is it overhyped or too good to be true. We get the true picture.

Career prospects

Due to the growth in fishing by trawlers in the high seas together with the preservation and marketing of sea products, there is a growing demand for trained staff. Fish biologists could work in the development of fish breeding farms or supervise fish research centres. They could also survey streams and lakes determining the prevention of infection and pollution in the quantity of fish found. A paying career for qualified people indeed.

A course in this subject would give you an option to do a lot. Of course, all related to the sea food industry. What's that? Fishery science is the study of the life, habits and breeding of the various fishes. Fishes constitute 70% of seafood consumed the world over and has led to the formation of a very big industry that requires professionals.

Foreign Languages
Foreign Languages In the age of information super- highways, we all have become world citizens. Advent of the process of globalisation has made the coming together of people from different countries much more easier. Opening up of economies has resulted in MNCs coming to our country and setting up business here. And it is precisely because of this that learning foreign languages is not merely an advantage for all those who want to work abroad but also for those who want to grow in life. Obviously, opportunities to learn these languages is also increasing. In addition to numerous freelance options, language professionals find application in various sectors like aviation, hotel management, tourism, teaching, etc.

Earlier, teaching was the traditional choice of language graduates, but things have undergone a sea change and a wide variety of lucrative careers is available.

To become a General Translator you should have excellent writing skills and a strong vocabulary in at least two languages. This profession poses various challenges because different languages generally do not have same syntactical pattern and many words and phases do not have equivalents in other languages.

In recent years the need to translate reports, contracts and various business documents for MNCs set up in India has grown many folds. This kind of translation is Technical Translation. The corporate houses approach various translation centres for this purpose.

The job of interpretation involves a lot of trust because it is the interpreter only who knows the crux of the conversation which is going on. Further, the interpreter must possess very high proficiency over the language concerned because unlike the translator he does not enjoy the facility of a dictionary. The work has to be done on the instant. A good awareness of the current developments and the familiarity with new technical terms would definitely help them in being more successful. Generally, interpreters find job as tourist guides. After specialisation they can also work at international seminars and meetings.

When recorded audio reports are translated into text format, the process is known as transcription. With more and more professionals relying on skilled transcriptionists, it has become a very fast growing industry. The most popular job of medical transcriptionist, requires a knowledge of medical terms and familiarity with the American accent is essential.

Teaching is the most traditional choice of a language graduate and still is very popular. Various schools, colleges and specialised language institutions provide different avenues to the graduates. After acquiring experience you can also prepare teaching materials like books and CDs. Teaching can also be done on a freelance basis. Proficiency in at least two languages and possession of excellent communication skills is a must to become a successful language teacher. He/She should also be able to work under pressure. And with time the deemand for language teachers is ever increasing.

Apart from the aforementioned options, people with a knowledge of a foreign language can find jobs as airhostess and flight stewards. For all those executives and students who wish to travel to the non - English speaking countries for either work or further studies, the knowledge of a relevant foreign language is a must. It can also prove beneficial to those businessmen who intend to expand their business.

There are only a few institutes which insist on completion of Plus Two, otherwise, most of them do not have any eligibility criteria for admission.

Remuneration in this field depends upon the employer, skills and experience. The nature of job also makes a difference. For example, a translator can expect to earn between Rs.150 to Rs. 300 per page for Indian languages, between Rs. 300 to Rs. 500 for popular foreign languages such as French and German, and upto Rs. 750 per page for Japanese or Arabic.
