    Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    Respected Sir/Madam

    I am a student having completed my final year BSc in Biotechnology. I wish to pursue my postgraduation and am totally confused on whether to take up biotechnology or biochemistry. As I'm intrested in both of them it wouldnt be tough for me if I take up any of the two subjects. I would like to have your opinion on which of the two subject has a wider scope and I surely dont want to get into the teaching line. As I have some financial difficulties, I'm planning to work immediately after my M.Sc and dont want to spend too many years doing research. Please suggest me on which field to opt for and which has wider scope. Waiting eagerly for your valuable comment


    Thanking you,

    Your's faithfully,
    Deepika

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    It is a good decision to pursue the Master's course. Since you pursued Bachelors in Biotechnology it would be better to continue in it. Changing streams is not a good idea. Also the scope for both the streams are enormous in India and abroad. Going into the research field doesnt mean you will have no income. If you join reputed organisations like the Rajiv Gandhi Institute you will receive a stipend and once you complete PH.d the salary will be as per the UGC pay scale. Also it will be easier to go abroad if you aspire to do so. You have various options like becoming a Forensic Scientist or a Medical Scientist or even a Biological Scientist. You also have options like becoming a Pharmacist, or joining a Clinical Laboratory.

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    There are many courses which you can select to do after the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology. It would be better to do your Masters in the related subject. It is possible for you to take up both Biotechnology as well as Biochemistry. If you would like to go for Biochemistry then you can also do that. The job opportunity after Biochemistry is huge and you can easily get a job after Masters. There are also many Post graduate degrees in Biotechnology which you can opt for after B.sc. This includes M.S Applied Biotechnology, M.Sc Animal Biotechnology, M.Sc Biotechnology, M.Sc Industrial Biotechnology, M.Sc Marine Biotechnology, M.Sc Medical Biotechnology, M.Sc Plant Biotechnology etc. You can also have an option for M.Sc. Biochemistry, M.Sc. Medical Biochemistry, Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Biochemistry, Post Graduate Diploma in Biochemistry etc. Make sure to do any of these courses in a well reputed institution. Some of the famous institutions which offer these courses are A.I.I.M.S, New Delhi, Bangalore University, Osmania University etc. If you choose to do Masters in Biochemistry you will be able to pursue a career in areas like Forensics department, Molecular biology, horticulture etc. Biotechnology fields also put forward lots of jobs prospect in areas like Bio fertilizers, Marine Biotechnology, National Bio-resource Development etc.

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    I am also studying biotechnology and i think you should continue your M.Sc.with biotechnology subject only...biotechnology is widely and instantly growing field and number of students is less so you ll get job easily...if you wish to go with biochemistry then its also a good choice...both are good and u ll get job easily...

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    Dear friend
    Biotechnology involves developing new techniques from organic materials, hybrid varieties of plants, making a plant disease resistant,
    Biochemistry also helps in pathologists that how much blood is infected with a microbe. Biochemistry of a sample will tell the report. So this field is compromising a new job in hospital sector.
    In India, there are several sectors that employ biotechnologists. They are mainly absorbed in medical and pharmaceutical industries, agricultural sectors and the research and development departments of government, semi-government and private sectors.
    The pharmaceutical industry offers the best opportunities.

    Thank You

    hai the both are the cources are most important. the b.sc bio technology and the b.sc bio chemistry is to get the bright future. but the biotechnology is the most wanted and more relevent course.

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    Biotechnology is already an established field. so going for it will never ruin your career.
    you need some good background with chemistry when studying for Biochemistry. It is an emerging field. projects are not widely available with this.
    If you become topper the M.SC biotechnology branch, There is a scholarship called "INSPIRE" via which you will get refund of your fees and also get a chance to work as a researcher. This is a central government scholarship.

    Re: Scope after Masters in Biotechnology and Biochemistry

    Hi,
    You have chosen very good subjects for your graduation. You have also very well said that you have chosen according to your inclination and preference. Now among these two my preference is Bio-chemistry. Although both are very booming subjects but the one I mentioned will be a better choice among these from career point of view. Since you do not wish to go to a teaching line, you may choose banking as one of the option. Along with your M.Sc. give the IBPS examination also. Just make sure that your graduation percentage is equivalent or above 60%. If you clear the Bank PO examination you would be able to get a decent amount of salary. But I do not want you to stop after this. While being in this job, opt for scholarships given for research work in Bio-Chemistry. If you are able to come up with a nice untouched problem in this genre and you produce some easy approach toward solving it and this approach is liked by the people who would give you the scholarship, you may get it. Sometimes as a token of appreciation, people who get such scholarships Laptops are also awarded. Sometimes rather than a research work an examination is taken for a scholarship. If you clear that exam you will get monthly salary to choose a problem and for continuing the solution towards it.
