 Bio-Technology still needs to be stabilized. Though we are seeing boom in bio-technology in India, it still has to go into roots. Future is very bright for this sector. Bio-Medical is gradually increasing its importance these days in India.

To get succeed in these branches one should have knowledge in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry subjects. There would be many challenges coming out from the researches which we do every day. So, one has to be ready to face the challenges

There are many good opportunities to study Chemical, Bio-Technology, Bio-Medical course in India. There are many job opportunities in abroad for these courses. Many of the Public and Private companies in USA, Australia and European countries are providing good job opportunities for these students.


Bio-Technology is the subject which gives more importance to research. This would have relationship with the following subjects, Bio-Chemistry, Genetics, Micro-Biology, Chemistry, Virology, Immunology etc... Bio-Technology has also extended its use in Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Plant Sciences, Health and Medicine etc… Research, Marketing, Production departments of these sectors have opportunities for Bio-Technology experts. After Bio-Technology a student can start his carrier with joining as Associate in some of the research companies or as a Project Assistant in some of the Public and Private companies.

There is a good network for these Bio-Technology research organizations. Under CSRI, ICMR, IARI and DRDO many companies are undergoing the research’s. This unity would help to increase the scope and opportunities of Bio-Technology in India. The most favorite jobs would be Research Scientist, Research Assistant etc…
