National College Basavanagudi is starting a 4 year course for science called as Bachelor of Science (BS). BS in physics , Nanotechnology and the like.
There was a big rush to the applications for BS @ NCJ as I passed through Gandhi Bazaar yday : It seems the US universities ask for a 4 year course in Science for MS in Physics etc. So, Indian applications for Sciences in the US universities might pick up according to me.
But it is a good move from the state to have a 4 year science course. I think they should have some courses in Photonics and Solar Energy to fuel research in these areas. I also heard IISc would be starting BS course. But no idea abt that.
