About Department Of Pharmaceutics
The Department of Pharmaceutics at Krishna Institute of Pharmacy strives to offer students a comprehensive education in the field of pharmaceutics. Our department is dedicated to ensuring that our graduates have the requisite knowledge and skills to meet the changing demands of the healthcare industry. Our broad curriculum encompasses topics such as biopharmaceutics, drug delivery systems, pharmaceutical microbiology, biotechnology, and the formulation and development of pharmaceutical products. Our experienced faculty members are dedicated to cultivating a supportive learning environment for students and utilize innovative teaching techniques and state-of-the-art technologies to provide a well-rounded education. The faculty members are also actively involved in cutting-edge research in areas such as novel drug delivery systems, crystal engineering, drug bioavailability enhancement and nanotechnology and encourage students to participate in research projects and publications. Our department is equipped with advanced facilities, including well-equipped laboratories with cutting-edge instruments such as the ATR-FTIR spectrophotometer, Brookfield viscometer, automatic diffusion cell apparatus, cooling centrifuge, lyophilizer, rotary evaporator, stability chamber, and more. In collaboration with industry partners and research institutions, we offer students opportunities for hands-on learning and research experience. Our focus on excellence and innovation is aimed at preparing the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists who will have a positive impact on society. Under the umbrella of pharmaceutics department we are having three post graduate programs namely M.Pharm in pharmaceutics, Regulatory affairs and Pharmaceutical quality assurance.

Teaching Learning Method
At our pharmaceutics department, we employ a dynamic and interactive teaching-
learning approach that combines traditional methods with modern technologies to enhance student engagement and knowledge retention. Our experienced faculty members utilize a blend of PowerPoint presentations and chalkboard demonstrations to deliver comprehensive lectures, ensuring conceptual clarity and facilitating active participation.
We foster an inclusive learning environment where students are encouraged to ask
questions, engage in discussions, and explore practical applications of theoretical concepts. Our faculty members are dedicated mentors who provide individualized attention and guidance to nurture students' intellectual growth and professional development.
In addition to classroom teaching, we emphasize hands-on learning experiences
through laboratory practical sessions, research projects, and industrial visits. These
opportunities enable students to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios, develop critical thinking skills, and gain practical insights into pharmaceutical sciences.
To further enrich the learning process, we embrace technology by incorporating
multimedia resources, interactive simulations, and online learning platforms. These tools
enhance the accessibility and effectiveness of educational materials, allowing students to
review lectures, access supplementary resources, and collaborate with peers beyond
traditional classroom hours.
By adopting a student-centered approach, we strive to cultivate a passion for lifelong
learning, professional growth, and innovation among our students. Our teaching-learning methods aim to empower aspiring pharmaceutical scientists with the skills, knowledge, and ethical values necessary to excel in their careers and contribute to the advancement of the pharmaceutical field.
