A Motivational and Guidance Programme for Students of Basic Sciences

The Department of Physics, Smt. Devkiba Mohansinhji Chauhan College of Commerce and Science organized a Motivational and Guidance Programme for the students of Basic Sciences on 13th September 2019. The Guest Speaker was Dr. Vijay Raybagkar from University of Pune (SPPU). The objective of the programme was to make students aware about career prospects in Basic Sciences. Students were informed about various career opportunities after pursuing B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees that would lead to a more peaceful and enjoyable life. There were many examples cited by the speaker from real life wherein the importance of science was showcased. In today’s date, when only engineering or medical fields are considered to be better and fruitful career options after higher secondary science course, the students were made aware about the various government and private schemes available for science students if they continue their education in basic science. The students were also motivated to take up entrepreneurship after their graduation, again by quoting certain real life examples. The speaker could connect well to the students which was evident by the questions asked at the end of the session.
