Pharmaceutics

The Department of Pharmaceutics, established in 2011 in NCP, with M Pharm specializations in Pharmaceutics, with an intake of 15 students.Pharmaceutics is the discipline of pharmacy that deals with the process of turning a new chemical entity (NCE) or old drugs into a medication to be used safely and effectively by patients. In this regard, the department equips a student with the knowledge and experience necessary for an excellent Pharmaceutical Formulation Scientist. Department of pharmaceutics provides excellent learning opportunities in a competent, well versed research atmosphere. The Specialization focuses on imparting training with a well- designed curriculum in order to become experts in the field of formulation development, Scale- up, Production and industrial Pharmacy.               

Curriculum is offered in 3 tracks, B. Pharmacy and M. Pharmacy and  Pharm D programme.. The department is richly blessed with a smart team of well experienced, dedicated teachers. Promising and productive research is carried out in the field of Formulation and novel drug delivery. A handfull of papers are published every year, in Peer reviewed, national and internationally well recognized journals.

PROGRAM

M Pharm Pharmaceutics

This program was introduced in NCP on 2011. The course content is methodically structured and designed to prepare the students for a career in pharmaceutical industry and to continue research activities in various pharma avenues including higher studies. The program provides various opportunities to the students to participate in R & D projects and to develop the research skills. Brief outline of the courses to be studied under this program is given below
