The duration of B.Sc. degree course ranges from 3 years to 5 years, depending upon the country in which you are studying for eg. In India the course is generally of 3 years whereas in Argentina the course duration is 5 years.

The B.Sc. degree course is a graduate degree course in Science this can be a part-time or full-time course but at SIMS we have full-time B.Sc. programs. This course forms the basis of science and comprises of the subjects like physics, chemistry, biology, zoology, botany, Bio-Technology, mathematics and many more.

With the advancements in the area of science and technology, this programme has become a one of the highly studied degree courses in the Institutions of India.

After the completion of the B.Sc degree there are various options available for the science students, they can go for master degree in Science i.e. M.Sc, go in a research area and can even look for professional job oriented courses. Often, in some reputed universities or colleges in India and abroad the students are recruited directly by big MNC’s after their completion of the course.

There are a wide range of courses available for the students in the Science stream. The students may go for a plain B.Sc or he/she might choose B.Sc. (honors). The students who are interested in the computer and information technology field can go for B.Sc. (Computer Science/IT).

Students who have an academic background of science at 10+2 level, they can pursue B.Sc programme in various branches.

The duration of the program is based on the choice of the B.Sc program choose by student, usually it will be for 3 years.

Pay scale in this field is very high, but the pay scale varies for a botanist in the private and government sector. The pay scale depends on the factors such as qualification, designation, experience and skills of an individual. Those who want to start their career as a teacher or researcher can expect a salary ranging from Rs18, 000 to Rs.20, 000 per month. For those working in other sectors can initially earn a salary in between Rs.15, 000 to Rs. 25,000 per month and the salary might reach up to Rs.80, 000 per month depending on the above factors.

Biotechnology is a combination of two subjects- Biology and Technology. Broadly speaking, it brings together concepts of Biology and Engineering and aims at putting concepts of both these subjects together, in a bid to enrich our lives and make innovative developments. Biotechnology course material can be classified into two sections- theory section and practical section. In theory section, students will have to deal with subjects related to biology as well as basic technology concepts.

Practical section is also very important. Students will have to spend good amount of time in laboratory, performing practical lessons as well as lab training.

At the end of the course, research project is also held. Lab activities form a major part of project.

12th Science stream students are eligible to apply for this course. Both PCM (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) as well as PCB (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) group students are eligible for this course.

B.Sc. Biotechnology course is a 3 years long course. Theory, practical and research project- all these parts have to be dealt with in these 3 years duration.

The major advantage of doing a B.Sc. course in this subject is that the course duration is short, when compared to a B.E./B.Tech. Program. B.Sc. course takes 3 years to complete. Whereas B.E./B.Tech. Program takes 4 years.

Another advantage is the relatively low saturation level in this field. From facts and figures, it is quite evident that B.Sc. Biotechnology is not a very popular professional course among 12th Science students. Students prefer courses like B.E./B.Tech., MBBS, BDS etc. On seeing the ‘B.Sc.’ label, they tend to ignore Biotechnology course. This has resulted in relatively less number of takers for this course. Ultimately, this has resulted in low job market saturation too! So, it is safe to say that finding a good job after graduation won’t be a tough task, when compared to heavily saturated courses!

Then comes the attractive prospect of availability of lucrative scholarships. Many State Governments are offering all studies expense covering scholarships to meritorious students, who choose to pursue B.Sc. course. Such scholarships are provided to students scoring above 85% merit marks only.

Biotechnology is a rapidly developing sector. Advancements are being made at good pace in this sector. Big firms are pouring in big money into it and new business opportunities are developing in this sector. These things have led to huge increase in job openings in this sector. In short, Biotechnology graduates are in huge demand these days.

After B.Sc. Biotechnology, one may go for M.Sc. Biotechnology, the Masters course. M.Sc. course will take two years to complete. After completing B.Sc. and M.Sc. Degrees, one may venture into PhD also!

Another post graduate course that can be done after B.Sc. Biotechnology is M.B.A. It will take 2 years to get an M.B.A. Degree.

This is a rapidly developing field. Many private businesses are exploring this field and heavily investing in it. It is safe to say that there are ample job opportunities for Biotechnology graduates in private sector. Government sector too offers job opportunities, but not in the scale in which private sector does.

Some prominent industries where Biotechnology professionals may find jobs are- Pharmaceuticals Industry, Healthcare sector, Chemical Industry and Research sector.

Research sector in particular is quite lucrative. One may build a rewarding career in this field. To thrive in this field, one must possess B.Sc. as well as M.Sc. Degree! Average starting salary generally is between 2- 5 Lakh Rupees per year.
