GATE Advice to Low Scorers

IIT Roorkee is offering M Tech Program on Nano Technologies.  Candidates with Gate Score in BT are also eligbile amidst others.  The course structure has some General subjects on Nanotech with electives on Nanobiotechnology related subjects and project work.  

What is your view and  what are the career opportunities in the Nano Biotech area?

Also what are your thoughts on  (1) Biochemistry  (2) Molecular Bio Physics - As per last year trends, my cutoff this year is in range to to apply for Phd Program in   bothe these programs at IISC, Bangalore.  What are the opportunities and prospects?

Thank You

Hello Sri,

As far as career is concerned, Nanotech's prospects in Indian job sector aren't great. In fact, this field is more a 'research oriented field'. You may easily find a place in some Research organization as a PhD scholar/Research associate/SRF but being a highly specific field, jobs in India might not be plenty for this field. Better pursue a PhD in Nano Biotech related field directly, if you really want to go for it.

A PhD in Biochemistry is a nice choice. PhD in Molecular Bio Physics will require a good knowledge of Mathematics and other allied subjects other than Biology. If you are comfortable with inter-disciplinary studies, you may go for the PhD in Molecular Bio Physics. Keep in mind that after a PhD, mostly you would land up in a reputed Academic institute as an Assistant Prof. Make your career choice based upon your career aspirations. 

If getting a job is your immediate requirement then better pursue Masters from an IIT or direct PhD from an institute abroad. If becoming a research scholar/professor is your ultimate goal then pursuing a PhD from one of the best institutes in India will greatly help your career. IITB, IITD, IISc, IITK, IITKgp, IITM, JNU, IIITHyd are no doubt worth going for in India.

Hope it helps

Best Regards

I have got a rank of 49 in GATE 2015. Can you please tell me the options that I have.Are IIT Bombay and IIT Madras good for mtech in biotechnology ? What about the written test and interviews they conduct for admission.?
I am so confused. Please help !
Thanks a lot
Hello Priankay,

First of all congratulations for the brilliant performance. IIT Bombay is undoubtedly one of the best choices, both in terms of the academics and job package. As the M.Tech in IITB is specialized in Biomedical Engg., so it all depends upon your career aspiration (whether you are looking forward to a career in Nano Biotechnology/ Tissue Engineering/ Organ Culture/ Bio-instrumentation etc). Biomedical Engg. is undoubtedly the field of current and future research. If you have an interest in the same, then blindly go for IITB.

If you are interested in Biochemical Engg. then any one of the IITD/IIT Madras will do. I'll recommend IIT Delhi over IIT Madras.

Your percentile is well above 99.5 (assuming 10,000 students appeared). You will easily get a call from Germany (DAAD) and Singapore (NUS) if you apply in time. Do consider that seriously.

If you have interest in business administration, then you may go for NITIE Mumbai (average package after PG is around 10 lpa for a good performer). It takes GATE qualified students with good GATE scores.

You may read my interview experiences here:

Hope it helps
