GATE Advice to Low Scorers
#9
Thank You Mr Sunil. As per info in IITB website, the cut off for Bio-Medical Engineering is 400 - I am not sure of job prospects for Bio-Medical Engineering. Your inputs on Job Opportunities in Industry and Teaching (within India) would be greatly appreciated. Also, Kindly advise if I stand a chance at IIT Hyderabad and Delhi. Thanks again

Hi Sri,

Well, a cut-off of 400 opens opportunity for many aspirants and it's great that IITB kept a lenient cut-off. If your GATE score is above 400, then without any doubt you should start preparing for their written test/interview. 

And IITB and IITD are amongst the best IITs in the country. I am sure that IITD will keep a lenient cut-off too (as per the preliminary info that I could see at IITD website, a minimum score of 300 has been prescribed for admission to Masters and PhD courses in IITD across the institute. 

You will get call from IIT Hyderabad without any doubt. It's a newly established IIT but it would be having a world class campus (Japan being the infrastructure head for it). Faculty is good there. As of now, the campus is under construction.

Job prospects are many after a degree from IIT. Average package goes around 7-8 lpa (IITD and IITB). Biocon, Dr. Reddy, Novozymes, Wockhardt, TRDDC, Abott, Consultancy firms are key industries. Teaching is always up and open for IIT graduates/PG/PhDs. More importantly, you will have all doors open to pursue a good PhD from a university abroad (Germany/UK/US/Singapore).

In short, your career woes would decrease drastically! 

Hope it helps

Best wishes

Thank You Mr Sunil - Really Appreciate your help.

For IITB, the Gate Cutoff this year is 400 for BT discipline - For branches like CS, EE etc it is in 500 to 600 Range.

My worry was the opportunities that Bio-Medical Eng has as compared to Biotech.

Thanks again for taking time to address my queries

Hello Mr Sunil

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

Sri
