M.Pharm ( Pharmaceutics)


About The Programme:

The 2-year M. Pharma program is aimed at creating skilled and competent pharmacy professionals catering the need of academia, industry and formulation research. The program imparts essential skills required in the area of formulation development, process development, and production which are essential components for pharmaceutical manufacturing of traditional and novel drug delivery systems.

The first year involves theoretical and practical sessions in the following areas: dosage form design; advanced pharmaceutical methods of analysis; drug regulatory affairs; biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics; dosage form technology; advances in industrial pharmacy; and novel drug delivery systems. The second year dissertation projects touch upon formulation development, stability studies, and process validation for traditional and novel drug delivery systems.

Expected Outcomes:

After successful completion of the program the graduate will be able to

  1. Independently carry out research /investigation and development work to solve practical problems.
  2. To write and present/publish a substantial technical report/
  3. To rationalize, design, develop and evaluate various pharmaceutical formulations using latest pharmaceutical manufacturing and analytical equipments.
  4. Apply the principles of biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics for development of efficacious dosage forms to be taken by different routes like oral, parenteral and topical.
  5. Implement the computer application in pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics modelling and simulation study.
  6. Execute team based research to implement innovative solutions in the area of product development and technology transfer.
  7. Develop cosmetics and cosmeceuticals and novel drug delivery systems with desired safety, stability, and
  8. Analyze, criticize, organize, improvise and manage documents, data and information related to pharmaceutical production process.
