Department of Pharmaceutics

Welcome to the Department of Pharmaceutics

The Department of Pharmaceutics strive to become a centre of excellence in academia, research and drug development with the objective of developing novel drug delivery systems with cost effective for efficient medication compliance. The effectual programs of pharmaceutical product discovery and development are demonstrated by our faculty to the students. We offer a training environment which includes newer formulation laboratory instrumentation and technologies monitored by our experienced and dedicated staffs.

The Department of Pharmaceutics established in the year of 2004 with an intake of 8 students and now it has been increased to 10 students. The department is well equipped for both teaching and research activities. It offers a master, doctoral degree program and also offers center for research students seeking Ph.D degree. The primary focus of the post graduate program is to provide students with enormous focus and training to prepare them for careers in research, pharmaceutical industry, and academia. These degree offerings are intended to endure the high entail for professionals with broad-based training in pharmaceutical sciences. The department also has excellent placement record. Academic and research excellence is achieved by changing curriculum, syllabus and pedagogy to meet the current requirements of pharmaceutical Industries, academics and regulatory bodies.

Scope of the Programs

The programs furnish various opportunities to the students to engage in R & D projects and to prosper the research skills. In Second Year M.Pharm students select a particular area of research and perform a full-year project work in a specified innovative area either in the college or industry. Brief outline of the courses to be studied under this program in First Year M.Pharm is given below:

Industrial Pharmacy

Focuses on the design of various dosage forms, challenges in the development of formulations, packaging, scale-up, and regulatory and intellectual property issues.

Biopharmaceutics and Pharmacokinetics

Involves study of factors influencing absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of drugs and using this knowledge to enhance bioavailability. This course also covers compartment modelling, nonlinear pharmacokinetics, BA/BE studies and PK-PD relationships.

Advances in Drug Delivery Systems

Includes the study of basic concepts and design and evaluation aspects of novel drug delivery systems, devices and technologies. This course also embodies targeted drug delivery systems and nanotechnology based drug delivery systems.

Modern Pharmaceutical Analysis

This course covers basic analytical methods/ techniques such as spectroscopy, chromatography, and electrophoresis which are generally used in the evaluation of drugs and their dosage forms.
