    Re: Career prospects after B.Tech in Biotech

    You have an option to join either a government organisation or join a private firm. There are various options available in the stream of Bio Tech. If you are interested in a private job you can approach pharmaceutical companies, agriculture oriented companies, food processing units. Also chemical industries too need candidates of this profile. You have the option to become a quality control officer or a research analyst. If you are interested you can also pursue higher studies. You could go in for a M.Tech, so you will be more specialized in the field. You need to be on the lookout for advertisements in this area.

    There are limited options in biotechnology field, but when you start exploring, you will come across plenty.
    Being B.Tech in biotechnology, there are companies like Dr. Reddy labs who recruit B.TEch biotech as Jr. Manager and pay around 3.5 lac as starting package.
    But there are other options as well.
    1. M.Tech from IIT/IISc - for this GATE is must.
    2. PhD - There is option to do direct PhD now in IITs and IISc. But for this either GATE or NET is required.
    3. Research associate in CSIR labs.
    4. Civil cervices exam - IAS/IPS
    5. Indian Forest Services exam
