The Goals and objectives

The curriculum has been developed to provide learning opportunities enabling pharmaceutical chemistry students to acquire fundamental knowledge, develop basic skills and appreciate principles relevant to pharmaceutical & medicinal chemistry, an amalgamation of chemistry and the life sciences

The two-year curriculum has been designed to achieve the following goals:

  1. To provide a comprehensive pharmaceutical education leading to MS Degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
  2. To be prepared for drug discovery in the changing and challenging health care environment of 21st century using the knowledge of organic, bioorganic and computer aided methods.
  3. To integrate medicinal chemistry with related pharmaceutical sciences enable the students to apply their knowledge to drug development
  4. To integrate analytical skills to enable the students ensure quality pharmaceutical products and care.
  5. To develop professionals for the isolation of natural products, synthesis and analysis of drugs.
  6. To understand the relationship between chemistry, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology of drugs.
  7. To provide industrial and laboratory based pharmacy education program.
  8. To prepare pharmacists who can function effectively in the social health care system.
  9. Contributing to social development through research in pharmaceutical sciences.
