    Biotechnology is a good field. Its application varies from agriculture to industry -- food, pharmaceutical, chemical, bio-products, textiles, medicine, nutrition, environmental conservation, animal sciences etc., arguably making it one of the fastest growing fields.

    Candidates having a background in science at the 10+2 level are eligible for the B.Tech course in biotechnology as well as the integrated M.Tech program at IIT Delhi.

    Graduates in all sciences/engineering technology/medicine are eligible for the post-graduate course in biotechnology.

    Admission to the integrated five year M.Tech program offered by IIT Delhi and Kharagpur is through the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE). The Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, also offers integrated M.Tech course.

    Bio Technology is the course of future. For salary sky will be the limit. At present the line is at infant stage but it will pick up by leaps and bounds. Anna university will be your first choice. Next any other college affilated with Anna university. Private deemed universities are having such course but it is advisable to keep them as the last resort as recognition of their degrees are not guaranteed. Cost will vary from 45K to 60k. per year. No need to get coaching for this seperately. First try and score more than 90% in your Plus II exam it will fetch you admission.Remember good marks always have open doors.
