What is the full form of BSC

(i) B.Sc: Bachelor of Science

B.Sc stands for Bachelor of Science. It is an undergraduate academic degree awarded for completing a three-year course in the field of science and technology. It is a popular academic degree course among the science students after passing the 12th class examination. This course duration can vary from country to country. It is a three-year course in India and a five-year course in Argentina.

This degree is awarded in multiple subjects of science. In India, you can complete B.Sc degree in many subjects like Mathematics, Biology, Computer Science, Information Technology, Physics, Chemistry, Nursing, Social Science, Agriculture, Biochemistry, Biotechnology and many other subjects. The University of London was the first university in the world which admitted a candidate to the Bachelor of Science degree.

B.Sc can be of two types: B.Sc Honours and B.Sc General. Although, both the degrees are awarded at an undergraduate level, they are slightly different from each other. BSc honours is designed to impart advanced theoretical and practical skills and is a more standardized degree and usually gives emphasis on a specific subject.


If you want to take admission in B.Sc, you must have to complete 12th from a recognized board with science subjects like Physics, Chemistry,Biology, and Math. You can choose your B.Sc stream according to your interest and knowledge.

Future after B.Sc

After the successful completion of B.Sc degree, a graduate can apply for a Post Graduate degree in Science (M.Sc) or other post graduate degree like Master of Business Administration.

If the candidate is willing to join a job, there are a lot of vacancies in private and Government sectors for a science graduate with good grades. Some popular job profiles and employment areas for B.Sc graduates are given below:

Job Profiles:

(ii) BSC: Base Station Controller

BSC stands for Base Station Controller. It is a combination of hardware and software that is used to provide control functions and physical links between the mobile services switching center (MSC) and Base Transceiver Stations (BTS). It allows one or more base transceiver stations (BTS) to communicate with a mobile switching center (MSC) in a wireless network. So, it is a critical mobile network component that controls and monitors one or more base transceiver stations. It is also known as a base station or a cell site.

Main Functions of BSC

Following are the key functions of a Base Station Controller:

  • Controls multiple BTSs
  • Manage Radio Network
  • Control Radio frequency
  • Establish a call setup and call transmission
  • Manage Base Transceiver System (BTS)handover
  • Power management
  • Uplink channel measurements
  • Time and Frequency synchronization
