Subject Demand

A number of factors determine the demand of professionals from this interdisciplinary field. Bangladesh primarily being an agrarian economy, requires professionals who can improve agrarian practices and optimize agricultural output. The growing population of the country requires improved life sciences related products and medicines. This in turn fuels the demand for an increased research and development of vaccines, medicines, tissue culture methods and so on.

There is a steady demand for these professionals in numerous organisations engaged in different types of industrial research and development. On the supply side, technical colleges are trying their best to meet the growing demand for qualified professionals.

One major problem faced on the demand side is that a vast majority of students who are engaged in cutting edge research often tend to leave their country to complete their research projects. Moreover, once these students complete their research work they tend to stay and work abroad.
