Master's degree in Biotech after Bachelor's in Biotech?
#1
Hello,

I wanted to ask if it would be a good idea to study a master's degree in Biotechnology after fulfilling a bachelor's degree in Biotechnology. I am sceptical about it because it may be a waste of time for me since probably a lot of courses in the master's degree may be similar to those I had in the bachelor's degree. Nevertheless, I was considering the master's degree in Biology-Biotechnology by the University of Copenhagen, which is one of the best universities for life sciences in the world. This master's allows you to chose a specialisation in Applied Enzymology, Bio Products, Cell Physiology or Immunology, so it might be a more specific study than just "broad" Biotechnology.

So, would you recommend me to go for that master's (I like it specially because of the University and the country where it is located) or to go for another more specific master's degree (I was considering also Nanobiotechnology in the University of Aalborg)?

I think you can go for Copenhagen and work on Applied Enzymology...its the field of present as well as future....Biocon in India itself would be interested in hiring you if you pass it with good score. Nanobiotech is yet to find place in corporate jobs, though in terms of research, it has plenty to offer.

Thank you very much, but my idea was to stay in Denmark. If I'm not mistaken, the Nordic countries are one of the leaders in biotechnology, right?

Hey adiarjun,..sweden is well known for its funding on biotech research, Denmark remains the leader in my perception and knowledge though...but I don't think that the Nordic belt has "best" to offer, when countries in other parts of Europe, like Germany, France and Switzerland  are undeniably the equally good leaders in Biotech research. And if you aren't turning back to India, I guess entire Europe is a place to explore (with opportunities wide and open)...why limit yourself to Northern belt only??
