Future career - Biotechnology

The first job after graduation, obtained by Msc biotechnologist, is often localised at a research institute or an university in- or outside The Netherlands. It usually concerns a research project or, more detailed, a PhD project: more than 50% of the graduated biotechnologist becomes PhD. Although most graduates choose for a career in science about 1/3 also starts in functions as engineer or technical expert.

After five years

After five years, about one third will still be employed as scientist at an university or research center. The others choose for a job in the biotechnological industry and work at companies like DSM, Intervet or Crucell. It is striking, that more than the half of the MSc biotechnology graduates, later in their career, will get a management function.
