Program Objectives

The Post-Graduates will acquire adequate scientific information regarding basic principles of Pharmaceutics including Cosmetology, Specialized drug delivery systems. They will also have hands on training of practical aspects of Synthesis of APIs and its intermediates along with Formulation and Development, Analysis and Quality assurance of various pharmaceutical dosage forms including those of herbal origin as per standards of official books, WHO, and other regulatory agencies.

The Post-Graduate will be able to think logically and solve the problems, will develop an ability to conduct, analyze and interpret data of pharmaceutical experiments in various departments (Eg: Drug discovery, Formulation & Development, Production, Quality control & Quality assurance etc) as per the needs of pharmaceutical industries.

The Post-Graduates will develop an ability to visualize and work on multidisciplinary tasks. They will be able to demonstrate necessary skills (eg.working independently, time management and organizational skills). They will demonstrate an adaptable, flexible and effective approach towards organizational development.

The Post-Graduates will develop interpersonal skills such as influencing others, negotiating and working with others, conflict management and leading others through the problem-solving process. They will be able to lead and function both individually and as a member of a team.

The Post-Graduates will demonstrate knowledge of professional and ethical responsibilities as per pharmaceutical jurisprudence. They will be able to demonstrate knowledge and skills in all disciplines of Pharmaceutical sciences and develop a sound pharmaceutical care plan to manage medication-related problems. They will retrieve, evaluate, and apply current drug information in the delivery of pharmaceutical care and assure safe and accurate preparation and dispensing of medications.

The Post-Graduates will demonstrate the impact of pharmacy knowledge on the society and also will be aware of modern issues. They will create awareness of healthcare issues through interactions with others and will gain a sense of self-respect towards community and citizenship.

The Post-Graduates will be able to demonstrate a high-level of understanding of the key stages in drug discovery, development, and commercialization. This will lead to the manufacturing of drugs and pharmaceuticals considering its impact on the environment and surrounding.

The Post-graduates will swear by a code of ethics of Pharmacy Council of India in relation to community and shall act as integral part of a health care system. They will demonstrate honesty, integrity, ethical understanding, and respect for others and will carry out their professional responsibilities by adhering to high ethical standards.

The Post-graduates will acquire excellent interpersonal oral communication and writing skills. They will be able to demonstrate knowledge and proficiency with current audio-visual presentation technologies and develop an ability to communicate scientific knowledge in non-expert/lay term by adopting various modes of scientific communications (e.g., abstract, manuscripts, project reports, oral and poster presentations etc). This will allow effective exchange of professional information.

The Post-Graduates will master the key concepts in the discipline of their interest in pharmaceutical sciences. They will demonstrate these skills to use modern pharmaceutical tools, software, and equipments to analyze & solve problems.

The Post-Graduates will apply theoretical and practical skills developed through classroom, laboratories and team project experiences and thus will develop confidence and will be able to i) do specialized research in the core and applied areas of pharmaceutical sciences. ii) manufacture, analyse and assure the drug based formulations. iii) promote and market the pharmaceuticals and iv) train the budding pharmacist to become self-reliant pharmacist and a health care professional.

Program Outcomes (PO)

PO1. Pharmaceutical Sciences knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, pharmaceutical fundamentals, and a Pharmacy specialization to the solution of complex Pharmaceutical problems.

PO1: Physicochemical properties of Formulations: The knowledge of importance of physical properties of the different pharmaceutical ingredients and the factors influencing them is very valuable for pharmaceutical dosage form design.

PO2: Unit Operations: Pharm. Engineering renders knowledge about the basic unit operations that are taking place in pharmaceutical industry and the different factors associated with it. This information is useful for both pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical engineering.

PO3: Entrepreneurship: The knowledge on different pharmaceutical dosage forms are imparted on students. This knowledge comes while handling a pharmacy or a manufacturing unit or in the further courses.

PO4: Design/Development of solutions: The information on solid dosage forms like tablets and capsules, their formulation and quality control serves as an important perquisite for dosage form design.

PO5: Application oriented Knowledge: The knowledge of biopharmaceutics enables the students to visualize the effect of pharmacokinetic (ADMET) parameters on the biological effect of the drug. The correlation of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics is thus introduced and is experimentally explained to them.

PO6: Environment and Sustainability: Enable extension of pharmaceutical dosage forms, and enables the students to learn about different packaging materials used in pharmaceutical industry and the factors governing their use.

PO7: Conduct investigations of complex problems: To understand biopharmaceutical principles and pharmacokinetic principles through different compartment models, multiple dosage regimens, non-linear pharmacokinetics, and assessment of bioavailability and bioequivalence.

PO8. Effective Citizenship: Demonstrate empathetic social concern and equity centered national development, and the ability to act with an informed awareness of issues and participate in civic life through volunteering.

PO9. Ethics: Recognize different value systems including your own, understand the moral dimensions of your decisions, and accept responsibility for them.

PO10. Environment and Sustainability: Understand the issues of environmental contexts and sustainable development.

PO11. Self-directed and Life-long Learning: Acquire the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context socio-technological changes
