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?
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
