B.Sc. Biotechnology - what now?
Sooo ...

I have now skipped a few threads and have read more or less only bad things about the biotechnology course. I'm finishing my bachelor's degree this summer and am now considering whether I should even do a master's in biotechnology if there are bad or no good job prospects.
I will wsh. do not do a doctorate and do not want to do research, ie. off to the industry.
I am curious about your opinions and maybe even suggestions!

See thread usefulness. You are in the same situation as many other 1000 biology students in the past, present and future.

And preferably before you make everything unnecessarily difficult with the bachelor's degree ...

Re: B.Sc. Biotechnology - what now?
Well, supposedly, courses such as biotechnology or bioengineering are supposed to be the courses of the 21st century and are in great demand. This is what Gerald HΓΆrhan, for example, says (former investment banker, Harvard graduate and company founder). It's not about pure biology, but about technology and innovation derived from biological systems. Above all, the demand already seems to be there today, see the chemical salaries for engineers and scientists.
My thesis: biology is bad, but bioengineering and then probably not technology either.

Re: B.Sc. Biotechnology - what now?
My thesis: Since Decades (!!!) Professors, stock exchange people (HΓΆrhan) and "futurologists" promise breakthroughs in molecular biotechnology and the associated job boom and great salaries, because they are absolutely essential Attract people to their degree programs want (that brings money from the state for the temporary laboratory workers and new laboratory equipment) or just theirs Recommend shares (-> stock exchange people) to readers or simply want to entertain them (-> futurologist).

Here's an old article (2002): http://www.mz-web.de/dessau-rosslau/hochschule-anhalt-neue-studienrichtung-9610352

Biotechnology has been advertised for ages. And where is the boom, if you please?

Study something serious (pharmacy, dentistry, medicine, teaching) or learn something decent (mechanic, train driver, nurse)but don't listen to them self-proclaimed prophetthat promise you golden mountains and a land of milk and honey in the future.

Re: B.Sc. Biotechnology - what now?
B.Sc. in biotechnology, industry and not interested in research?

Is possible. My tip: At an engineering service provider who supports large-scale projects in chemistry / biotechnology / food / pharmaceuticals, start in the quality / qualification area and don't let the low starting salary distract you.
Do a good job there and jump into one of the companies or let it be lured away after 2 to 3 years of professional experience, with a corresponding salary increase.

Specialists are currently being sought in this area and more and more young professionals are being hired. Quality is not a very attractive professional field for many.
