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.

The registration dates for this bi-annual executive program run by the institute are updated timely on the webpage. The Training sessions and webinars are scheduled preferably on weekends depending on the availability of visiting faculty. Effective E-learning tools incorporated into the design of the webpage make the course lectures, videos and study material easily accessible. This gives huge window of self-regulated and self-paced performance to the participants.
All the participants are expected to appear for an online exam and are also obliged to submit assignments after each module. After successful completion, the participants will be awarded Executive Diploma in Pharmaceutical Process Engineering. For all the above mentioned modules elaborate course material, self-assessment assignments and project work details would be provided by the Institute from time to time. Details get updated on the webpage as well.
IGMPI follows a credit system based on all all learning activities involved in studying for all PG Diploma, Executive Diploma and Certificate Programmes. Each of your modules is equal to 4 credits. To successfully complete the programme, you will have to earn all the credits assigned to your programme.
Pharmaceutical Process Engineering provides a strong focus on problem solving, Technical, conception, design as well as managerial and practical application of knowledge to particular fact scenarios through a number of advice drafting exercises. The Process Engineer professionals will execute the process development experiments and process optimization of API & formulations, Scale-up of API & formulations from lab scale to pilot/commercial scale, execution of submission batches and validation, Preparation & review of batch documents & protocols. Process Engineering is important in extending benefits of R&D, Production and engineering to the society at a large, especially in developing countries. Technology Transfer is important for commercialization especially, in the case of developing and underdeveloped countries.
