Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Pharmaceuticals Technology is a 3 years undergraduate degree programme that stands distinctively unique compared to a Bachelor of Pharmacy in the aspects of drug discovery and development and the use of technology to produce results that are required for the global pharmaceutical demands. The objective of this programme is to produce knowledgeable and competent pharmaceutical technologist who can function effectively in work process design in pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, pharmaceutical biotechnology, veterinary, pharmaceutical microbiology and radiopharmaceutical industries. Graduates will be equipped with the capability of adapting to global changes and current developments. This programme will prepare graduates to seek employment in research laboratories, in drug production, in regulatory services, in quality control and assurance management as well as in the marketing of pharmaceutical and other related products.

Mode of delivery of this programme includes lectures and tutorials, problem-based learning (PBL), presentation, computer-aided learning (CAL), laboratory practical and industrial attachments. There will be a final year Industrial research project which students will need to complete before graduation.
