The subjects offered in the Biological Science stream are Botany, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Studies, Micro Biology, Molecular Biology & Plant Biotechnology and Zoology. Those offered in the physical Science stream are Applied Mathematics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Studies, Electronics, Physics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics. In addition, the students of the Biological Science stream can follow auxiliary course units in Botany, Industrial Management and Zoology.


In all the B.Sc. degree programmes, many course units, which are important for the development of the country, are offered by all academic departments to enhance the employability of graduates.
