CAREER TREND 2020 : BIOTECHNOLOGY
The field of Biotechnology focuses on the intersection of biology and technology, leading to a vast array of new products that are
designed to enrich lives, make day-to-day living easier, and make us healthier. From vaccine production to genetic modification,
biotechnology is everywhere – and as a result, biotechnology careers are quite promising for new graduates. This guide focuses on
the various biotechnology degrees, jobs and expectations for those who are interested in the field.
Students who choose a career in the field of biotechnology have several areas of specialization to choose from. A few options include
working as a microbiologist, epidemiologist, biochemist, botany specialist, agricultural or food scientist or biomedical engineer.
Graduates might wind up working in a laboratory, creating seed lines or in a vast field or testing new soil composition. They might
work to clone animals, develop new pharmaceutical drugs, create a bionic pancreas and so much more. No matter what the career
path, it all begins with rigorous study and earning a biotechnology degree.
STEPS TO BUILD A CAREER IN BIOTECHNOLOGY
Working in the biotechnology field starts with the proper education. Though there are numerous pathways to the various professions,
some steps to success are universal. Here’s how to get there
START WITH THE BACHELOR’S DEGREE : SELECT RIGHT COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY
Once high school is over, it’s time to move into college and earn a bachelor’s degree in biology, biotechnology (if offered) or a closely
related field. Though there are associate degrees in biology that will form a firm foundation for the bachelor’s, most entry-level
positions in biotechnology will require at least a bachelor’s degree.
GET HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE
Learning about the job and getting hands-on training in the field can look great on a resume, as well as provide students an
opportunity to decide what area of biotechnology interests them the most. Some students choose internships during their college
years, while others seek out part-time or full-time work with biotech companies or labs.
STAY UP-TO-DATE
Technology is always changing, growing and shifting. Some fields of biotechnology are moving so fast that they can literally change by
the week. That’s why it is so important to stay up-to-date by subscribing to industry publications, becoming active in industry
associations, keeping in touch with network contacts, and otherwise staying on top of what is happening in the field. Biotechnology
careers offer quite a bit of overlap; for instance, a soil and plant scientist might choose to eventually work as an agricultural and food
scientist, and their education might support both paths. Seeking out new opportunities to expand on a current profession is one of
the perks of working in the field, and can lead to exciting possibilities
THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE ISN’T EVERYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO RECRUITMENT.
Now, this is an extremely important part of a career in Biotechnology. So be sure to implement these things if you want to get success
in the Biotechnology field:
Have A Clear Base: To make a recipe, all the ingredients are required. Right? So how would you be able to build and innovate
something without solid education? In Biotechnology, the ingredient for your recipe is your education. We recommend you to look
out for such programs and institutions where you can educate yourself in a pragmatic way.
Pay Attention To Your Soft Skills: It’s true that one needs to have a strong theoretical base but still, when it comes to getting hired in
a company, one needs to pay attention to how well they are at communication? How do you interact? How well are you able to prove
your concept? How do you deal with troubleshooting problems and handle conflict?
• Learning Attitude: As a biotech professional, be ready to face continuous change in the industry. You will
have to stay updated and keep yourself educated to get success.
• Networking: Studies have proved the fact that more than 80% of the jobs are taken by those who are well
versed in building up a network. At first, this process may seem time-consuming but your efforts are worth
it.
ADVANTAGES: WHERE CAN BIOTECHNOLOGY TAKE YOU?
Career Opportunities
The best part of pursuing this subject is one can choose from a range of a career opportunities-
• Agricultural Biotechnologist
• Food Safety Analyst
• Lab Technicians
• Academicians
• Medical Biologist
• Molecular Biologist
• Environmental Biotechnologist
• R&D Scientist
• Soil and Plant Scientist
• Biochemist and Biophysicist
• Bio-Pharm Expert
Job Growth, Prospect & Outlook
There is fantastic job growth in biotechnology, with most of the industry growing at pace with — or faster than
— the rest of the economy. Biomedical engineers, for instance, are growing at a rate of 27 percent this decade.
This is because our world continues to have problems that need solving — and biotechnologists are in the
business of solving problems by pushing the envelope of scientific innovation.
Biomedical engineers are needed because humans are living longer than ever thanks in part to their designs.
Agricultural engineers will be needed to think through land management issues as demand for food increases
but arable land decreases. Microbiologists remain on the hunt to cure or control existing and emerging
diseases, such as HIV and Ebola. Agricultural and food scientists are making use of nanotechnology to make
food safer and developing biofuels to reduce the need for fossil fuels.
However, the jobs we have discussed thus far account for only about 112,00 jobs in the United States, meaning
that in absolute terms, job growth will be small. (According to BLS data from 2014)
Future Scope in this Field
The U.S. biotech industry grew by just about every measure in 2014, according to Ernst and Young’s 2015 industry report. Revenue
was up 29 percent, net income increased 293 percent and there were 164 more biotech companies than during the previous year. All
of this meant one thing for jobs: There were a lot more of them. The industry added over 10,000 new jobs in 2014, which equates to
a staggering 10 percent annual growth rate. Of course, not all of these jobs were for scientists and researchers — many were for
support staff one might find in any industry. Jobs specific to biotechnology — involving research and development and
manufacturing.
Having said that, the industry itself is quite large and there are jobs not yet discussed that fall within it. For instance, biological
technicians assist scientists with laboratory research. They gather biological samples, conduct experiments and analyze the findings.
Typically, they report on how these findings may be applied to new products. There were 80,200 of them in 2012 in the U.S. and they
are expected to grow 10 percent by 2022. With education and training they may move into more advanced careers in biotechnology.
FEW UNIVERSITIES TO GIVE WINGS TO DREAM
• Delhi Technological University
• Brainware University
• Birla Institute of Technology
• Institute of Chemical Technology
• Jaypee University
Keeping in mind the recent job demand in the field of biotechnology it’s very easy on the part of any student to dream of building a
creer in this field.

Agricultural and food scientists are making use of nanotechnology to make food safer and developing biofuels to reduce the need for fossil fuels. However, the jobs we have discussed thus far account for only about 112,00 jobs in the United States, meaning that in absolute terms, job growth will be small. (According to BLS data from 2014)
  • 5. Future Scope in this Field The U.S. biotech industry grew by just about every measure in 2014, according to Ernst and Young’s 2015 industry report. Revenue was up 29 percent, net income increased 293 percent and there were 164 more biotech companies than during the previous year. All of this meant one thing for jobs: There were a lot more of them. The industry added over 10,000 new jobs in 2014, which equates to a staggering 10 percent annual growth rate. Of course, not all of these jobs were for scientists and researchers — many were for support staff one might find in any industry. Jobs specific to biotechnology — involving research and development and manufacturing. Having said that, the industry itself is quite large and there are jobs not yet discussed that fall within it. For instance, biological technicians assist scientists with laboratory research. They gather biological samples, conduct experiments and analyze the findings. Typically, they report on how these findings may be applied to new products. There were 80,200 of them in 2012 in the U.S. and they are expected to grow 10 percent by 2022. With education and training they may move into more advanced careers in biotechnology. FEW UNIVERSITIES TO GIVE WINGS TO DREAM • Delhi Technological University • Brainware University • Birla Institute of Technology • Institute of Chemical Technology • Jaypee University Keeping in mind the recent job demand in the field of biotechnology it’s very easy on the part of any student to dream of building a creer in this field.
