Dear aspirant


Biotechnologist

Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. I appreciate your step to talk to us for your family member. First of all i would advice you to talk to your family member to know if he/she really likes studying biotechnology. Because as a counsellor or even as a parent i always feel that every child should explore their interest and analyse themselves what they like or what will suit them. I will advice on careers for Biotechnology and the possible routes but before that please go on this mera career website and ask your family member to take the psychometric assessment that is available. Taking the test, they will understand tehir personality and will also know what sort of careers will suit them. Moreover they can understand if they truly want to study Biotechnology degree.

As you have not mentioned on any details on your family members current education status, i will give you a detailed picture. If the person has chosen Physics, chemistry and Biology at 12th level, she can only opt for three year bachelors degree like the BSc Biotechnology/ BSc Industrial biotechnology or BSc Medical biotechnology. If she has studied maths, phsyics, chemistry and biology at 12th level, she is definitely eligible to study engineering (maths is the eligibility subject for studying engineering) and therefore she can choose to study a four year BENG/ BTech Biotechnology/ Industrial Biotechnology/ Environmental Biotechnology/ Medical biotechnology.

If the person aspires for studying BSc Biotechnology then they may be required to attend individual entrance test conducted by the colleges and some top colleges for this BSc degree are
  • Delhi university and omportantly St Stephens
  • Jawaharlal Nehru University
  • University of Mumbai - importantly St Xaviers college
  • University of Calcutta - importantly Presidency college
  • St Josephs college Bangalore
  • Christ university Bangalore
  • Mount Caramel college Bangalore
  • Madras Christian College Chennai
  • lsr Delhi
  • LPU Punjab
  • Brabourne college Calcutta

If they aspire for studying a BTech Biotechnology then these colleges are considered as top rank. Also if the focus is studying at any of the IIT institutes, then they need to write and get a high rank in IIT JEE exam. If they focus on private college like BITS then tehy need to write BITS entrance exam.
IIT Kharagpur
IIT Bombay
IIT Delhi
IIT Madras
BITS Pilani
DEC Delhi
Amrita college of Engineering Bangalore and Coimbatore
VIT Vellore
