Your choice of course should depend on what you want to career you want to pursue in the future. If are planning to teach after completing your education then B.Sc in Biotechnology is a more suitable option. However, if you are planning to work in the corporate sector or want to go for research in abroad universities, B.Tech Biotechnology is a preferable option.

Check the difference in both the courses below:

B.Tech in Biotechnology:

  • B.Tech degrees are four-year degrees, the last semester comprises of a 4–5 month project that will definitely teach you hands-on biotech.
  • You will also get opportunities to work on projects and get your research papers published. It also enriches your practical knowledge and makes your CV look good.
  • B.Tech includes a wide range of topics, a few of which are: engineering math, basic and advanced biology, programming, chemical engineering, industrial biotech, mechanical engg, electrial engg, electronics and communication, genetic engg, immunology, biomedical engineering and instrumentation, etc.
  • It’s a degree that’s so vast that you have many choices for your future career; a software engineer, manager, research scientist, teacher, a pharmaceutical biotechnologist, environmentalist, and so on. Basically, it gives you a chance to explore various fields and understand where your interests lie.

B.Sc in Biotechnology:

  • B.Sc. degrees, on the other hand, are domain-specific and are extensively theoretical. They take three years for completion and do not provide enough hands-on experience.
  • The natural career path (although not always) is to do a M.Sc., PhD, and either become a professor, or post-doc.
  • Also, B.Sc. degrees in a NAAC ‘A’ credited university are the ones that are internationally recognized and may make it easier to study abroad (some foreign universities have this criteria)
