    Re: What should I do to become a scientist?

    Through both BSc and BTech you can become scientist though the path would be somewhat different like BSc>>MSc>>research/scientist (through competitive exam)>> or, Mphil>>PHD>> research/scientist whereas in other case,
    Btech>>Mtech>>research/scientist (through competitive exam)>> or, Mphil>>PHD>>research/scientist

    Re: What should I do to become a scientist?

    If you are willing to become a scientist then you should do B.Sc in Microbiology or Macrobiology or Biotechnology.After graduation you will have to do Msc in either of these subjects but before that you have to face entrance exam & note that you have to score 60% or above in graduation.Once you complete Msc then your chance of becoming scientist will open.

    To be a scientist, you need to focus on favorite subject and must try to get bachelor degree in that subject or Branch. Then you have to choose major subject for research and apply for PG in the same subject by going through various exam data and college data available on net. After PG it is easier to get the job in research company and simultaneously apply for PhD. So your economical condition remain stable to do research and you also got the field to expertise your self to publish research paper. And then you are on final step to be surely called as scientist.

    Re: What should I do to become a scientist?

    [FONT=Calibri]Friend, it's really a fantastic idea to serve our nation,for your career as a scientist,you should pursue core science degrees (BSc, MSc and hopefully, a PhD) at IISc. This will help you maintain focus on physics. Engineering is an applied science; where research is not the first priority[/FONT]

    [FONT=Calibri]I believe IIT-JEE is the entrance test for IISc (Not sure though, you should confirm this)

    If not IISc, you can join IITs/NITs/BITS for Engineering, but the onus is on you to be close to research and eventually become a scientist[/FONT]

    Dear friend , its not all about degree...the original thing is how much you are intersted in your fieldTo the original poster, i suggest you browse through my journal and look for the "what is a physicist"-entry .Don't worry about money. if you are any good and you have some management-brain, you'll make lots of it...Trust me on that, been there, done that do what you are really interested in...follow your heart

    Try to complete Batchler and master degree after that you
    can apply Ph.D which is a recerch job where you can fine new things.


    you can go for either for b.sc of for b.tech


    and according to my knowledge you should have to choose biotechnology ,

    Dear sir/madam,
    a scientist is just like a priest of science, all people belive in god n pray but a priest can only worship the god with a proper fashion. Likewise, every one can know something about science, can learn about science. but when a man can be able to fond or prepare a good thing by the knowledge of science,when he utilizes the science for the welfare of both himself n mother nature then he will become a good scienctist.
    n you are asking that which fleld is better, but i suggest that in which field u are interested, in which field u u have good knowledge u go through that definetely u will get success n u will become a good scienctist.

    A scientist is an individual who uses the scientific method. The person may be an expert in one or more areas of science.

    If you want to become a scientist you should select any one of science related course in under graduation and concentrate in that course and then you have strong knowledge in science and math it is very helpful for your research .

    So I will suggest you to select field of your interest. Then and then only you can work in that field.

    You can specialist in that subject . Then you can join in the post graduation and then you can join PH.D course . After that you can go head for own research.

    You should have hard work and full concentrate in your work for complete your research .


    Qualities Of Scientist :
    1) Attention on Details
    2) Communication Skill
    3) Dedication on Long Term Projects
    4) Brain power

    Re: What should I do to become a scientist?

    there are a lot of steps in becoming a scientist .
    i will tell it step by step for your better understanding


    firstly you have to take science combination in your 12th level ...

    PCM (physics chemistry maths)

    PCB(physics chemistry biology)


    you can take optional subjects like computer science, computer application, statistics ,etc

    then you must pursue your under graduation course in any of the following streams

    1.B.Sc
    2.B.Tech


    you can do B.Sc from any recognized university like DELHI UNIVERSITY,CALCUTTA UNIVERSITY,PUNJAB UNIVERSITY etc

    you can do B.Tech from any institutes like IIT or any other recognized engineering college


    after graduation, you must do post graduation like M.sc/M.Tech

    then you should go for PhD.in this time you will get offers from several institutes and scientists also to join them in their research work as 'assistant-scientist'

    now based on your work and performance, your future will be shaped.

    you will get promotions and finally you will be categorized under 'scientist',

    you can work under someone ...or if you prove yourself good enough, then you may get projects of government or private sectors on which you have to research to discover or invent something new ....


    so all these things require ample hard work and labour
    without that it will be impossible to reach your goal



    you need to have great patience and you must be innovative one so that you can do new things in the scientists arena to gather name and fame

    WISH YOU SUCCESS!!!!!!!!

    Hello,
    You can become scientist by adding degrees and certificates in your profile and getting some patents registered on your name.
    So start working on this path by adding more degrees to your profile. B.Sc / B.Tech in horticuture / agri is having huge scope in india and you can do more research in this field and find new ways (innovation) of doing and improving the present ways of doing them..
    This field require patience and devotion to the task undertaken by you as research takes long period of time to give results and sometimes no result...

    So start working hard for this field by giving your 200%....

    All the best

    Re: What should I do to become a scientist?

    hello friend

    your wish to become scientist is really appreciable..

    i think you're a merit student .inspite due to some reasons you're adjusting in a low reputed university..here i want to mention something.

    No organisation or company looks for the student from a high reputed university all they go for those so called top university's because they have a beleif that all the merit students will be in those university's

    No its not the fact some of the meritourious guys like you can also be spread out in the vast country like india..

    so all you have to do is just go on increase your subject knowledge ..

    and one more thing , to prove as a scientist its not at all necessary to work in ISRO or so ...

    ISRO or DRDO are jus only plat forms for you...

    if you want to make them as your platform for growth its a wise decision...

    all you concentrate apart from your college reputation is

    show your potential in your university

    make some research work

    do some amazing things which are not done by many other folks of your university

    be unique in your thinking

    always aim high

    don't let chances go alone ...go with em'

    and be updated with local news like the entrance exam notification for ISRO

    NASA and so on

    regularly follow some career related sites like this

    and keep on update your knowledge...

    this all may help you to have a vision on your goal..

    all the very best

    be one of the best scientist

    make our india to the top

    regards

    ~jain~

    First you should know that scientist is person who invent some new things. So to invent some new things the person must be interested in that particular field , then and then only he will able to invent some new things.

    The answer of your question Should I do B.Sc in Biotechnology or Agriculture or should I go for B.Tech in Biotechnology ?

    Is lies above in two lines. Choose that field in which you are interested.

    To become scientist you should have following qualities like - scientific thinking , eager to discover something different , you should have lot of patience.

    After completing your graduation in any science field you can join for following organizations :

    ISRO

    - You have to apply for ISAT.

    hello friend,
    your aim is very good and if you want to become a scientist then you should choose your own interesting subject that may be bio-technology or other.
    firstly you should complete your masters degree and obtain a ph.d or m.phil by doing searching in that field then you will become a scientist.

    all the best..................

    A scientist in simple words is a person who engages in scientific activity to aquire knowledge.He should have great amount of patience as research work requires time.He should also have the never ending curiosity and willingness to keep learning.

    Both courses you mentioned are good.But you should choose what you are interested in.You could choose BSc or Bio technology.Once you complete that you should move forward and take specialization in that subject.For instance if you choose BSc,choose Msc after that followed by Phd.This way you will get to learn more.This will further broaden your knowledge and curiosity.Then take some research works and give your best.You could also join some college as a professor meanwhile continuing your passion as a Scientist as well.
