Customised Training

As Pharmaceutical companies continue to expand, new technologies and drugs come on-line and new pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical plants are built, the need for skilled manufacturing personnel has grown dramatically. The ability of companies to recruit fully trained and experienced staff becomes more difficult. Changing technologies also require existing personnel to be trained in these new areas as they unfold. How does a company cope with training new recruits and existing personnel in all the required areas of science and technology with an emphasis on the working of a manufacturing facility?

TU Dublin -Tallaght Campus has the capability to partner with companies to create short customised courses that offer a foundation in certain areas associated with the industry. Through these courses TU Dublin - Tallaght Campus has been successful in:

  • Implementing a hands-on, industry-driven curriculum
  • Developing modules which provide the technical and practical components required by the industry
  • Developing modules which suit the company needs and can be built upon at a later date if the students desire to achieve a recognised scientific qualification

Past clients include:
Abbott, BD Medical, B+L,Centocor, Genzyme, GSK, Guidant, Helsinn, Helsinn Birex, Janssen, Merck, Pfizer, Takeda, Trinity Biotech, Wyeth Biopharma, Wyeth Medica Irl.
