The vital component of all the Bio Technology enabled industries is, Industrial Biotechnology. With lots of companies with the food processing and pharmacy industry setting up their Research and Development (R&D) set-ups across the country, there is a large degree of demand for the professional researchers. To cater this demand, several Indian academic Institutes in India, offer separate industry oriented courses, especially in the Masters level. These programs train the students to replicate laboratory result in a huge industry set-up. MSc program in Industrial Bio technology is offered in many of the Indian Universities. There are courses available in the Industrial Biotech discipline in the Post-MSc level as diplomas. These are offered in many Institutes/Universities as cross disciplinary diplomas which greatly will support their MSc skills and get exposure more.

  • Aspirants who are not having interest to pursue a specialised course in Industrial Biotechnology, they can pursue Mtech or MSc in Biotechnology. Another popular course in this discipline is Bio-chemical engineering that can be trained as chemical engineers with the extra-edge to apply their knowledge in biological products.
  • Although huge number of jobs is available in India for these graduates, lots of students are showing interest to become entrepreneurs. This is because of the reason that industrial Biotechnology is having vast application in the food processing industry. Anything from Fruit Jam till sandalwood oil can be produced and preserved with the different preservative methods. As it requires very little man power and limited use of technology, entrepreneurship is being opted among these graduates, largely.
