Apart from having a scope in teaching at the undergraduate, postgraduate or at school level, Biotechnologists can make a career in Pharmaceutical/Therapeutic/Health Industry, Research & Development Sector, Food and Dairy Industry, Agriculture/Pesticide/Bioremediation Industry, Distillery/wine/Beer Industry, Genetic Engineering/Genetically modified (GM) Crop Industry or as a Patent Analyst as well.
Other potential option is to have a career in Research in diverse sectors including Environmental, Industrial, Medical and Microbial Biotechnology.
Students doing B.Tech in Biotechnology from MMDU have gone abroad quite often. Many multi-national companies are looking for talented students for bright job prospects in the field of Pharmaceutical, Health, Research & Development, Food and Dairy etc and offer good pay packages as well.
Our students are competent to go for higher studies abroad in technically advanced and developed countries after qualifying GRE. They may opt for variety of interdisciplinary Master’s programme in Biological sciences which makes them skilled enough to adopt a career in variety of industrial sectors abroad. Furthermore, the Master’s students of MMDU have a wide scope of going to foreign land for pursuing their career in research and pursuing higher education such as Ph.D. degree course in Biological Sciences. Ph.D. degree holders can make a career in research in the above countries by pursuing research as a Post Doctoral Fellow or Research Associate/Scientist.
No, the department is not offering any diploma or certificate courses till date.
We strive to work on over-all personality of the student and continue mentoring him or her in areas of communication, presentation and logical reasoning ability.
