  • There a Lot of Government, as well as Private job opportunities, are present in front of postgraduates of this stream. Talking about Government jobs, State Agriculture Departments recruits post Graduates to fill up Officer level posts. Government Colleges also hires M.Sc. folks to work as Lecturers. Government Banks also hires them to fill up Officer level posts in India.
    Talking about Private Sector jobs, graduates may find jobs as Managers at Plantations, as Officers at Fertilizer Manufacturing firms, Agriculture Machinery Industries, Agricultural Products Marketing firms, Food Processing firms etc. One may also work as a Lecturer in Private Colleges.
    These courses have a very good prospectus in other countries. But you should get your M.Sc from a very good standard University and you should get good rank in the university. Then many countries will consider these postgraduates for different posts in concerned departments. Many foreign Universities will offer you teaching post.
