DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY

Home > Courses >DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY

Introduction

Pharmaceutical Technology is a branch of engineering and is the study of the origin, preparation, properties, effects, dosage and dispensation of medicines. Pharmaceutical Engineers are concerned with the transformation of raw materials into valuable products by chemical, biochemical or physical processes. They are involved in the conception, design, construction, and operation of industrial plants in which the above processes take place, increasingly with design at the molecular scale being more and more significant. The duration of the course is four years and it is career orienting in nature. The course is beneficial for understand the process involved in production and purification of medical compound in the laboratory / bulk drug manufacturing industry, characterization of these compounds and stepwise handling of drug materials in formulation industry. All the laboratories are fully equipped with state of the art Pharmaceutical Technology equipment and supported by uninterrupted power supply facility.

Vission

ACADEMIC YEAR 2019 – 2020

Basics of Diagnostic Pathology

  • Diagnostic pathology identifies the cause of disease based on morphologic and clinical pathology findings, as well as history, clinical signs, and ancillary test results. It is important in all areas of pathology, both in spontaneous and in experimentally-induced disease. It is essential to investigate unexpected disease or death in laboratory animal colonies. It is used in Necroscopy, radiography, urinalysis, microscopic examination of tissues and haematological tests.

Screening Models on Various Pharmacological Activity

  • A system is described for screening new chemical entities in normal human subjects, which is designed to search for novel drug actions at an early stage of drug development.

Granulation Technology

  • Granulation technology is a technique of particle enlargement by agglomeration, is one of the most significant unit operations in the production of pharmaceutical dosage forms, mostly tablets and capsules.

Pharmaceutical Industrial Training

  • Pharmaceutical industry training program that assures that an entry level sales applicant has meet product and regulatory industry requirements to be a pharmaceutical sales representative.
