Functioning of T &P:

Guest Lectures

Eminent professional technocrats either from academics or industry are routinely invited for disseminating their expertise in the respective branches of pharmaceutical sciences to the students by organizing their guest lectures/ training program. Such endeavor prepares the students for the campus selection programmes and helps academically.


To train the students for practical up gradation, two industrial visits are made compulsory for the pre and postgraduate students. During such visits, the students are exposed to a real industrial/work-site environment for a short duration. They are taken to organizations/ industries/projects at national level. The undergraduate students who failed to make the trip are required to complete an outside training for 60 days in a reputed organization/industry/laboratory etc.


Placement is a critical edge between the completion of academic program and suitable employment. The T &P cell not only guide but also help the final year students in securing jobs which commensurate with their interest and achievements, by organizing campus interviews and exploring various avenues for their placement. The cell provides all necessary facilities to the guest organisations and their respective officials conducting campus interviews. Our students have been recruited in no. of national as well as international pharmaceutical companies (List I).
