SCOPE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEERING
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has predicted that in terms of job opportunities there will be a growth of at least 10 percent for biological technicians, biochemists, and biophysicists in the period between 2012 and 2022. There has also been an increase of seven percent in jobs for microbiologists. Further, Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineers are playing a vital role in the development of medicines that do not have any side effect and can be effective in minimum dosages on patients. With an increase in the consumption of packaged food, biochemical engineers’ role in the food processing industry has also gained importance.
