  • Process Development (P&D): One of the important areas in bulk drugs industry is developing viable processes for the manufacturing of drugs and intermediates for their commercial production.
  • Formulation & Development (F&D): The success of any pharmaceutical company lies in the quality of its products, i.e., its formulations & dosage forms.
  • Clinical Trials, Bioequivalence studies, Toxicological Studies: These are some of the areas of clinical research, which are in high demand, as they are involved in the systematic evaluation of potential drug substances prior to getting them approved by the authorities.
The pharmaceutical industry has an extensive  job market, however we still use the university’s links with industries and businesses, in order to create space for its graduates through internships, placements and job fairs.
