Industrial biotechnology is a very broad term with include application of biology at industrial level. So it can include major share of biotechnology since biotech in itself means application of biology at industrial level for social benefits. So industrial biotech consists of anything from application of Genetic Engineering, Plant, Animal, Food and Dairy Technology, Marine and Pharma biotech to even nanotechnology whichever branch being utilized at industrial scale. Food sciences and technology is related to several aspects of food starting from harvesting crops (seed/fruits/edible portions) or animal edible items, such as milk, or slaughtering to its cooking and consumption. It is in some means related to agricultural sciences. A food scientists carry out several scientific work, just like, studying the causes and prevention of food borne illness; studying the causes and prevention of food quality degradation; studying and designing the industrial processes used to manufacture food; inventing new food products; studying how food is perceived by the consumerís senses; studying the molecular composition of food; designing various ways of food packaging so as to preserve the food after it has been processed; studying the application of science to culinary practice and more generally gastronomical phenomena; and of course studying the instrumentation aspects also. Therefore Food Sciences and Technology in facts include many different branches of sciences, like instrumentation, chemical engineering, microbiology, biochemistry etc.

If not wrong food is the first requirement of any living organism of course here human beings. Therefore the importance of food science and technology can't be ignored. the fast life style of the growing urban population has given rise to fast food culture in our country. This has increased the demand for packed and processed food vis-ŗ-vis making the consumer more quality and nutrition conscious. Food Processing Industry is a very fast growing industry with good job prospects in India and abroad. Latest data indicates that the food industry is the fifth largest industry in India. Right now it generates employment for around 20 lakhs people and is likely to generate 2.5 lakhs new jobs every year. In many advanced nations, it is the largest industry.

Food production, procurement, processing, distribution networks and retailing can be very lucrative ventures for you. As we know several big multinational companies has already entered in this sector. Therefore the industry is offering tremendous job opportunities to qualified food technologists. The opportunities exist mainly in processing industries, hotels, food industries, quality control, packaging industries, hospitals,  bakery industries, distilleries, soft drink factories, product design, pharmaceutical industry, biochemical engineering, spice, rice and cereal mills. In Food Sciences and Technology various departments providing jobs in India are, factory production(60 percent), R&D (15 percent), Government labs (3 percent), Teaching (2 percent),  Remaining sector (20 percent).

Salary: A graduate with B.Sc., B.Tech. and B.E. in  Food Sciences and Technology can earn from Rs.8000.00 to Rs.12,000.00 per month. A PG degree holder in the same can earn from Rs.12,000.00 to Rs.18,000.00 per month depending upon his/her professional skills. with increasing entry of multinational companies in this field job prospects and salary packages are very good. One can opt for business by taking loans from nationalized banks at subsidized rates.


Educational Institutes

Eligibilities: Students with PCM or PCB or Agriculture at 10+2 level can apply for under graduate courses in food science and technology. For admission in PG course in Food Sciences or Food technology, eligibility criterion can be B.Sc. degree in Food Sciences or Food Technology or sometime even B.Sc. with CBZ, it depends upon University's policy as now there are lots of private universities offering such courses and they have flexible eligibility criteria.
