Biotechnology, an interdisciplinary branch, has grown rapidly in both educational sector and employment sector over the recent few years in India. This branch of science includes physics, mathematics, engineering and chemistry. A graduate in biotechnology has a wide scope with respective to their career decisions in the future.

Top colleges select students for MSc Biotechnology through entrance exams. The cost of the courses range between Rs.20,000 to Rs.2,00,000 as per the ranking of the colleges. The graduates have plenty of job opportunities for research in government and private centers. This branch of science is an innovative field which requires some intense skills like analytical ability, perfect communication and perseverance. There are a few promising careers in Biotechnology.

  • Medical scientists research and analyze the biological systems to invent new drugs for treating human diseases.
  • Biological technicians are people who work for the medical scientists to help in the maintenance of the equipments and the laboratories. They also help the scientists in the preparation of the samples for analysis and tests.
  • Clinical lab technicians perform tests in the health care facilities to study and analyze the blood or organs. They specialize in clinical chemistry and molecular biology.
  • Biochemists perform tests to study the effect of specific experimental drugs on the DNA and RNA of humans.
  • Biomedical engineers, one of the most profitable careers, deal with the process of designing and constructing medical equipments. These equipments are used in the diagnosis of diseases in patients and the engineers are responsible for the safety functioning and the maintenance of the equipments.
  • Microbiologists study the functions of the various micro organisms that are found in the human body. They analyze the microscopic bacterial or viral cells to develop new drugs which can prevent diseases.
  • Epidemiologists collect information about the causes of diseases in order to improve the health of the public. Surveys and interviews are conducted to collect the information and the data is analyzed to develop statistics about the public health illness.
  • Researchers and scientists are people with extensive knowledge and skills to manufacture drugs that can treat diseases.
  • Biomanufacturing specialists supervise and check if all the requirements of the medical equipments that are manufactured have been met. They regulate the management and the safety standards of the equipments.
Bioproduction operators involve in the packaging and shipping of the medical machinery. They also specify all the precautions needed for the equipments.
