Overview

The Bachelor of Pharmacy in Pharmaceutical Chemistry imparts knowledge to students in various aspects of drug design, testing, development, safe and effective use of drugs/medicines, and drug delivery systems. The study of Pharmaceutical Chemistry includes analytical techniques, cures, and remedies for disease, pharmacology, quality assurance, metabolism, and drug chemistry.

A graduate simply doesn’t work in a pharmacy but focuses on areas of research that are not related to customer service. A pharmaceutical scientist not only invents a drug but also saves one’s life through their invention.

This B. Pharma course involves both practical and theoretical forms of studies. The field of pharmaceutical analysis is very active. The course is an interdisciplinary study, including biology, engineering, and technological concepts. Also developing techniques for procuring, designing, and evaluating various kinds of drugs and drug delivery systems.
