About the Course
This is a one-year follow-on programme to the Higher Diploma in Pharmaceutical Production. The programme aims to give science/engineering graduates an advanced in-depth study of the specific needs of pharmaceutical production and technology transfer. Students will gain hands-on experience through assignments undertaken in the Institute’s Pharmaceutical Education Centre. The programme is designed to allow graduates to work in API, biopharmaceutical and finished dose manufacturing. Programme delivery is done over two college semesters. Candidates must take all modules on offer in each semester.
The programme consists of two taught modules, an industry-based work assignment and a thesis and it will incorporate a combination of regular seminars, tutorials and practicals. The Institute’s Pharmaceutical Web Campus provides online access to course material. Candidates are expected to be working in a relevant industrial setting and will be expected to carry out some assignments at their place of employment.
