The main difference between B.Sc. Biotechnology and B.Tech. Biotechnology is that the duration of B.Sc. course is short, when compared to B.Tech. program. B.Sc. course takes 3 years to complete. Whereas B.Tech. program takes 4 years.
There are a lot of career opportunities available for biotechnology Graduates in chemical and textile industries, agricultural sectors, pharmaceutical firms and manufacturing industries. Professionals in this career can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges. Bio-technologists can seek employment in research laboratories, which are run by government or private sector.

Sir, im a final year student of BSc biotechnology. im not interested in research . im looking for a job oriented course right after which i could get into a secured job. is there any such course available under the stream biotechnology which i can opt as my PG course.?? also is it a wise decision if i go for MSc psychology instead?

A PG course (degree or diploma) in pharmaceutical biotech/ agricultural biotech/ veterinary biotech or something more specific to microbiology is a good choice for finding a job. I would suggest pharmaceutical biotechnology as a more preferable option as job prospective could be better there.

A biotech graduate has employability in the field of agricultural industries, pharmaceutical industries, biofertilizer industries, chemical/petrochemical/environmental industries, food and beverages industries, academia and research laboratories.

I am not sure about the MSc Psychology on a job perspective.

All the best.

Dear Lakshamana Kumar,
Happy to see your good academic achievements. Did you try a teaching job in higher education?
I would suggest you to try a higher degree in India or abroad. Do you have published your research somewhere?

Since your field is a hot one, you should try contacting cancer research institutes/hospitals. Tata has good facilities in Mumbai area, for example. The ICSCCB in Pune and Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology in Trivandrum are famous institutes contributing to biotech and cancer research. I believe you are already in touch with these institutes.

Most of the medical/health and allied science departments in the universities around the world will have research facilities on your subject. You may contact applied chemistry department as well. Stanford Medicine Department and BioADD division of Stanford University are good targets. You may find very helpful and guiding faculty members in such departments. You may contact them through email.

All the best,
