Updated on : December 7, 2021 by Jonathan Kaur



Can anyone do a masters in biotechnology after B.Pharm?

Yes, you can do M.Tech in biotech after pharmacy.

yes …… any B. Pharma graduate who has passed GATE or GPAT is eligible for the NIPER entrance exam.

and after passing and getting a good ranking in the NIPER entrance exam during the course selection activity, you can choose MS Pharma in Biotechnology.

NIPER is a great place to do science.

If you can. You can even enter iit's for mtech biotech and private universities like srm for genetic engineering.

The scope can be classified in several ways. So I am writing in two main sections so that one can use it based on the general interest.

Employability

Pharmacy offers better employability compared to biotechnology, biochemistry or microbiology. The reason is the huge pharmaceutical industry. B. Pharm. in itself will give you a good job while M. Pharm. can give you a reasonably decent job. The pharmaceutical sector includes various fields of work, from research, development and manufacturing to sales and distribution. All of these fields require a large amount of manpower. Then phama secor wins this employability criterion. Although most of

Employability

Pharmacy offers better employability compared to biotechnology, biochemistry or microbiology. The reason is the huge pharmaceutical industry. B. Pharm. himself will give you a good job while M. Pharm. can give you a reasonably decent job. The pharmaceutical sector includes various fields of work, from research, development and manufacturing to sales and distribution. All of these fields require a large amount of manpower. Then phama secor wins this employability criterion. Although most of the jobs are in the private sector, the number is also huge. Three other fields also offer jobs in the private sector, but in India, the field of life sciences continues to grow.

Research / Academy

Pharmaceutical research is not well developed in India compared to life sciences. Research requires post M.Sc. work and biotechnology, biochemistry and microbe are similar in this respect. The reason is that most research institutions in our country give equal preference to M.Sc. students of biotechnology, biochemistry and microbe or other life sciences when selecting them for the doctorate. or a project work. So if one wants to do research, one must go for any of these three fields in master's degree.

Academics require publication. All of these fields are eligible for publication. All of these fields can be a good platform to become an academic. Although the lack of research and more opportunities in the private sector in the pharmaceutical industry makes the pharmaceutical industry more work oriented and less academic here. While the other three are more academically oriented due to a well-developed research infrastructure and limited private sector opportunities.

**** Finally, choose what you want. Recognize your passion. You can't spend your life doing work you don't like. Some people want money first, so they can go to the pharmaceutical industry, some people want to do research, so they can go to three other fields. Ultimately, it is your choice that you want to see yourself in the future.

Broadly speaking, I would put potential opportunities into two categories:

Category 1- Higher Education

Category 2- Professional career

Category 1: If you want to continue your education, the following are some options that you should probably consider:

  1. M Pharm - If you want to further improve your understanding and skills in the pharmaceutical domain, you'd better get a master's degree. The master's degree would be very helpful if you want to pursue a career in research as you would get a broader picture of research activities. Based on your requirements, you can follow M Pharm in India or abroad. Consider

The master's degree would be very helpful if you want to pursue a career in research as you would get a broader picture of research activities. Based on your requirements, you can follow M Pharm in India or abroad. Consider the risk-benefit ratio while planning your college / university.
  2. Pharm D: If you are planning a career abroad, opt for Pharm D as the course curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of pharmaceutical education in many countries. Pharm D graduates have a very important role in the healthcare system, but unfortunately in India it is still not cultivated in the right way.
  3. MBA: If you do not want to restrict your opportunities to the pharmaceutical industry and you are looking for accelerated growth in your career, then MBA is the right choice. My sincere advice is don't seek an MBA for money or because your friend / senior did. Have a clear idea of ​​what you want to achieve in the future, and then decide. Target the best B schools and take advantage of the best opportunities.
  4. PHD: If you have a heart for research, then you can also go with PHD after your graduate school. The Ph.D. will also give you an edge over others once you achieve a higher position in your career.

Category 2-

If you want to end your education and start your professional career, you have the following options:

  1. Jobs in Pharmaceutical Industry / Clinical Research Organizations / Biotechnology Companies - As a B Pharm graduate, you will have the opportunity to work in departments such as production, quality control, and rarely in R&D, formulation, etc.
  2. Marketing jobs: If you have an instinctive ability to convince people, marketing is a very good option. Sales are an integral part of pharmaceutical companies and you will have many opportunities here.
  3. Hospital Pharmacist: To be honest, the role of pharmacists in the Indian healthcare system is greatly underestimated. I hope things improve in the near future. However, you have opportunities in both private and government hospitals.
  4. Retail / Wholesale Pharmacy Business - If you have an eye for customers, you'd better start your own pharmacy. Even though margins have decreased after the 2015 DPCO restriction of drug price margins, there is still plenty of room to make good money.
  5. Teaching: If you are passionate about teaching, I am sure that finding a job as a teacher is not a difficult task. But over the years, you would need a master's degree, a doctorate, etc. to strengthen your career.

Frankly speaking, there is no limit if I start writing about what can be done after graduation. But it all depends on how you want to proceed.

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never stop growing.

Good luck.

Asking a Biotechnology student how the topic is the best decision and answering the same for a student is difficult, very difficult, but I will do my best to answer your question.

you need to learn the techniques of how to do the work in the labs, which can be quite difficult for the first few days. the subject is a combination of Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Forensic Sciences, so you must keep your base very clear. Because enrolling in a good institute means that you will have to pass the entrance test that is based on the national level. yes, you will have to study computer applications and b

you need to learn the techniques of how to do the work in the labs, which can be quite difficult for the first few days. the subject is a combination of Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Forensic Sciences, so you must keep your base very clear. Because enrolling in a good institute means that you will have to pass the entrance test that is based on the national level. yes, you will have to study computer applications and bioinformatics as well. so there is a better chance for you in the future so that you can move on to any other if you don't find the topic up to scratch.

You have to be patient, you will have to work for hours in the lab, and you may get a negative result, so a lot of patience is required. You will have to keep trying over and over again until you get the desired results.

At the same time, the topic is very interesting, you will know a lot about drugs, the mechanisms of machines such as PCR, the electrophoresis method and many others. You will even be able to see and use some expensive machines in the world.

So in the end, all I can say (pursuing my Master of Biotechnology in the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India) is that if you have an interest in the subject, do it without any fear. because life is risk !!! I'm sure all the topics are difficult, but we have to make it easy.

Hope that's enough to answer your question. All the best.

Yes. Although I am not an expert to advise on the prospects of a B.Pharm course, I can share the success of my friend, a classmate who began his academic studies with B.Pharm. After this, he did a master's degree from NIPER in Mohali. When he completed his PG course, sometime in 2004, he was placed at Dr Reddy's Laboratories (DRL) as an intern and confirmed as a junior scientist. But my friend was not happy with his work. You probably must have seen older people with a PhD doing groundbreaking research work. So he left the job in 2 years and went to the US to get a PhD in finance related to the pharmaceutical industry.

So he left the job in 2 years and went to the United States to pursue a PhD in the field related to the pharmaceutical industry. Please don't ask me what, I have no idea. In about 5 years he completed his PhD and I believe that in his third year of PhD he joined Eli Lilly as an intern. Through hard work, dedication, and academic achievement, he rose up the corporate ladder: junior scientist, senior scientist, and skipped a few companies along the way. He is currently Associate Director of Biotech Domains at a large US-based, US-based pharmaceutical company.

If your just-started career with B.Pharm can take you places, you can imagine the potential. Before I used to think very badly that B.Pharm graduates end up as chemists at the local medical store.

Best wishes!

The conflict between microbiology and biotechnology is endless!

I would say it depends on what you plan to do after your studies. If you want to pursue industrial research, biotechnology would be a better option. Microbiology is a basic science, while biotechnology is its application part. If you want to join academia and do research, then you can go microbiology.

Having a background in the pharmaceutical industry, you may be interested in pharmaceutical industries that manufacture certain compounds or vaccines in large-scale fermenters. Does that sound like something you would like to do?

Or do you prefer

Having a background in the pharmaceutical industry, you may be interested in pharmaceutical industries that manufacture certain compounds or vaccines in large-scale fermenters. Does that sound like something you would like to do?

Or do you prefer to work on the bioavailability aspects of a certain candidate antimicrobial drug? Is that attractive?

These are just examples. But yes, you should think along these lines.

Another helpful practice could be to read the syllabi for both courses and then make an informed decision. I hope this helps. We wish you all the best!

Thanks for the A2A.

If you are not interested in business, there are some good job opportunities in the pharmacy line, some companies pay for excellent packages like sun pharma, cipla, glenmark, etc.

Also, there are many job opportunities in the US, which is why most of the students look for jobs abroad and move to the US to continue their studies.

I'd say roughly on par with regard to job prospects. However, since biotech is a niche area, the chances of landing an initial job offer may be lower. After the first job, of course, the prospects are even. In addition, the pharmacy will offer options in different but related fields, such as marketing, manufacturing, and many other fields (which may also include areas related to biotechnology). But also keep in mind that biotechnology will also open up opportunities in the pharmaceutical field. So go where you are firmly in love or with the pharmaceutical industry if you are unsure. You must complete at least one postgraduate degree today to improve your

You must currently do at least one postgraduate degree to improve your employability. All the best.

You can easily opt for an M.Tech program in biotechnology if you have a B.Pharm background. The minimum eligibility criteria for M.Tech in Biotechnology is B.Tech in Biotechnology / B.Pharm / M.Sc in Life Sciences. This, of course, varies from university to university.

You can write the GATE (biotechnology) test to get a seat at M.Tech. Alternatively, many universities conduct their own entrance exams; therefore, you can also type them.

Good luck!
