Hope your doing good
According to the current scenario of jobs/placements and placements, Food Technology is better than biotechnology. Because biotechnology is offered by almost every college or university of India so there is lots of competition among students getting biotech degree.
Students who wish to possess knowledge of diet, fitness, nutrition and processing of food products before packaging can pursue B.Sc Food Technology course.
After the completion of B.Sc Food Technology course, candidates can pursue M.Sc in Food Technology from top institutes in India like Central Food Technological Research Institute, Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology etc.
b.Sc Food Technology is a good degree choice for candidates who want to make a career in food manufacturing and packaging sector. The knowledge about various processes of food production like hygiene marketing and finance helps a student achieve a successful career
Job Prospects :
Biotechnology is a rewarding and promising career option.
- After completing the course, graduates can seek employment in chemical industries, agricultural sectors, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.
- Professionals in this career can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges.
- Bio-technologists can seek employment in research laboratories, which are run by government or private sector.
