Biotechnology means any technological application that uses biological systems or living organisms to make or modify products or processes for specific use. It refers to the use of microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts, or biological substances such as enzymes, to perform specific industrial or manufacturing processes. Applications include production of certain drugs, synthetic hormones, and bulk foodstuffs as well as bioconversion of organic waste. Bio- Technology is concerned with variety of subjects including Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, Chemistry and Engineering. Biotechnology has wide areas of application in Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, development of Medicines and Vaccine, treatment of prolonged disease, pollution control and waste management and ecological conservation, energy production and conservation and many more.


What does a Bio Tech Engineer do?


  • Bio-Tech Engineers involve in medical processes such as getting organisms to produce new drugs, or using stem cells to regenerate damaged human tissues and re-grow entire organs.

  • Biotechnologist involves industrial processes such as the production of new chemicals or the development of new preservative that can be used for food storage.

  • Bio- Tech Engineers deal with medical devices, instruments used in hospitals & medical labs.

  • Bio Tech Engineers also deal with bioinformatics which involves the use applied mathematics, informatics, statistics, computer science, artificial intelligence, chemistry, and biochemistry

  • Biotechnology experts develop a hybrid plants and involves such processes as the development of pest-resistant grains or the accelerated evolution of disease-resistant animals.


What is the future for a Bio Technology graduate?

Career Prospects

Like the IT sector, Biotechnology in India is also throwing up tremendous scope for growth and is contributing to the total biotech market worth US$100 billion. The country has a global market worth US$91 billion and there is scope for cheap R&D through bio-partnering and co-developing technologies mainly with Chinese and American companies. More and more global pharmacy companies are seeking India to set their research and development centres here. 

A biotechnologist may find jobs in various quarters. In India, students can mainly explore job options in the following fields:


  • Drug and pharmaceutical research
  • Public funded laboratories
  • Chemicals
  • Environment control
  • Waste management
  • Energy
  • Food processing industries
  • Bio-processing industries

The government institutes and organisations, such as Department of Biotechnology (DBT), several agriculture, dairy and horticulture institutes offer employment to Biotechnology professionals. 

In the private sector, there are tremendous job openings for biotechnologists. Drug companies in biotechnology like Dabur, Ranbaxy, Hindustan Lever, Dr. Reddy's Labs that have their R & D units offer Biotechnology professional with handsome pay-package. There are also ample opportunities available for biotechnologists in the food processing industry, chemical industry and the textile industry.
