M.Pharm. (Pharmaceutics)

The course addresses a scientific area, which at present, is the basis for some of the main methods of research in the area of development of pharmaceutical products. It is designed to familiarize the student with the fundamental principles pertaining to and the techniques employed in the formulation design for pharmaceutical agents. Introduction of the student to research techniques in the pharmaceutical sciences is made at the initial stage of their studies, which enriches their understanding and application of their knowledge during their research projects. Student will complete the course with advanced knowledge and skills applicable for a variety of practice settings in dosage form design, manufacturing technology, regulatory aspects, patents, quality control and quality assurance.


  • Tailor made course suitable for pharma industries and research organizations.
  • Case studies from top industry executives.
  • Experienced and vibrant faculty with expertise in pharmacy education and research areas.
  • Frequent interaction with industry and research team.
  • Opportunity to grow with industrial training.
  • Need based research in industry related areas.


The course shall extend over two years, consisting of two semester in the first year, followed by research work on industry related project and submission of dissertation in the second year.

The Institute believes that self learning is the best means of learning, especially at the post graduate level, and accordingly, faculty should act as facilitators more than teachers. A great deal of emphasis is therefore placed on experiential learning. Students are required to work on a number of industrial and academic research projects during the three years that they are on campus.  In addition, teaching is heavily oriented towards case studies, presentations, quizzes, assignments, workshops and labs. A variety of seminars are organized by students and faculty members during the academic session. There is a strong belief that at the Institute in ‘learning by doing’ and in the dictum that a true pharma education goes beyond the classroom. The students are therefore exposed to technical depth of the subject and are also encouraged to participate in all professional activities.
