    Hi Saranya,

    In the ever changing field of Science, biotechnology holds a vital position in bringing about these changes...I appreciate your willingness to further grow in this field.

    In Science, academic exposure means a lot and students try to achieve more accomplishment by pursuing PhD. Higher studies will provide you with foundation for critical thinking which is essential for research. Therefore I would suggest you go for M.Sc in biotechnology, rather MS from international schools. As you have laid out a good platform by doing B.tec, finding an admission in good graduate program is easier.

    Choosing a field of study should be one in which you have interest, like if you are fascinated about simple living organism then microbiology will be great or else if you like the complexities of life, physiology will be of good option. Growing need of potential drugs has made pharmacology, biotechnology, pharmaceutics, toxicology, bioanalytical sciences and medicinal chemistry prime area of research. Therefore education in any of these fields will make you a more desired candidate in near future.

    Hope this information help you focus in your need for continuing education or taking up career. :thumbsup

    Cheers Pankajini :cheers

    It all depends on what you want to do. If you are of an academic bent of mind, the road is clear. Masters, Ph.D., Postdoc and researchand teaching. Not much money but lot of personal satisfaction.
    Do M.Tech, join a biotech firm in the prod. Dev. or R&D.
    Take a job in biotech firm right away in production, marketing or whatever and do an MTech part time later.

    With a BTech one can go to a foreign university and do further studies there in any of the bio fields with a scholarship.

    A biotechnologist can advance beyond performing research and developing products and methods.He or she may work as a biotechnology investigator and ensure companies are following safety and health regulations.:drowning
