    Scope MSc in Microbiology? Is Biotechnology much better than Microbiology?

    I am doing my BSC in Microbiology this is my 3 year. I want to do my Msc in Microbiology, but I dont know whether there is any scope for that. I have yet not applied for any entrance exams. Still thinking whether to apply for JNU university exam because still confused whether I should do Biotechnology because its a different field, and as such not interested in that. Please suggest me which entrance exam do I have to give for MSc in Microbiology. Also give me some information about Biomedical Sciences and there entrance exams. Please try to reply to my query as quickly as possible.

    Making the right career choice can be a very difficult choice. It is important that the candidates choose the one based on their skills. It is important that the candidates have the skills to perform a duty or a task efficiently as only then will they able to attain heights in their career. The areas mentioned are both interesting and have good scope in career. Since you are doing a Bachelors in Microbiology you need to decide as to why you would like to change the stream. Is it that you are not interested in this area. Microbiology should be the preferred choice since you have the basic knowledge for the same. Also there are good opportunities after completion of Masters course.

    As you are in your last year of B.Sc, it is a very crucial time to make the right choice and go ahead with the decision. This is the time one needs to be much focused and choose the right career path according to the personnel aspiration and interest. Both biotechnology and microbiology are excellent courses and offer excellent opportunity career vise. But from analyzing your education background, it would be better if you stick on to the Microbiology. This is solely because, Microbiology field has multi-disciplines. You can chose any of the inter-disciplines and specialize on it according to your interest. This will help you to make a career or even pursue research and become a well trained and talented professional. Were as in Biotechnology, one will be taught about lot of areas and unless and until a student do a Ph.D in a specific area you cannot master in the same. Make a choice in the course by considering your future goals and interest.

    The Indian market is expanding rapidly for Medical Sciences. This sector is becoming one of
    the largest recruiters. It contributes 5% of India's GDP which is increasing by 15% every year.

    Microbiology focus into prevetion and treatment of diseases. I would suggest you to do
    MSc. After completion of M.Sc in Microbiology you may enter in Pharmaceuticals
    Industries. Or if you study further PhD. it will lead you to scientific jobs. As a fresher
    you will be working as a loboratory assistants and research microbilogists.

    In India itself you may earn a starting salary of Rs.18,000 per month as a fresher in research
    and development organisation and in health sectors. This tends to rise quickly as you a year
    experience. In countries like USA you may earn $6000 per month depending on your skills and capabilities.
