Pharmaceutical Process engineers are involved in the planning, conception, design, construction/Execution, management, operation of research facilities, pilot plant for scale up, manufacturing plants and labeling & packaging processes in the conversion of chemical and biological materials into valuable pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical therapies. They have to implement FDA regulations, validation assurance, quality control, and maintain Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant facilities. In addition to the safety of the end product, they have to maintain a level of personal and environmental safety. The processes that they come up with are used to create products ranging from oil, gas & drugs to food and drink.

This course will provide a thorough understanding of Process engineering in API and in formulation for develop and design new process and modify existing ones in very cost effective way with safety, increase productivity in existing system, engineering calculations for taking decision at spot etc. This course provides professionals with the skills and knowledge to allow them to participate effectively in the creation and growth of high impact pharmaceutical business ventures. The development of this course is in direct response to the demands of industry and its professionals will be highly competitive in the global jobs market.

This short term programme has been designed mainly to provide brief of Pharmaceutical Process Engineering. The programme provides collecting, linking, and manipulating different types of biological information to discover new biological insight. Thus it works as re-fresher course for those already in the industry and an insight or practical guide for those planning to enter into this sector. You can complete this course from your own city.
