The scope of Biotechnology is highly diverse as it impacts industries like food processing, pharmaceuticals, agricultural production, cosmetics and rearing animals.

An undergraduate degree in Biotechnology provides a firm basis for pursuing a career in any aspect of science involving biotechnology. This could involve the food, pharmaceutical or environmental sectors, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, nanobiotechnology, use of microbes, DNA vaccines, production of new materials using new ideas, new drug-delivery systems, organ transplantation, rational drug design, nutraceuticals, plant-based drugs, enzyme engineering and technology, stem cell techniques, and tissue culture. However, if you intend to look for career options after BSc, the scope will be limited. A lucky few do get selected in major biotech or pharma companies. The competition will be tough. The best thing to do would be to get a master’s degree in the subject. You can also opt for an MBA in Biotechnology.

With an MSc in Biotechnology, you can pursue careers in fields like clinical research, quality control, data management and healthcare. You can also apply for a PhD if interested. The MSc degree is an acceptable qualification for applying for a PhD.

With a PhD, your eligibility increases for handling directorial roles in sectors like industry, medical, healthcare, food manufacturing, environment etc. You also have the option to stick to extensive research activities.
