Summer Placements

The Placement Cell is also involved in organizing industrial training for B. Pharmacy students. Though the B. Pharmacy course provides a basic understanding of pharmaceutical profession to the students, it is the one month long industrial training that acquaints them with actual operations of an industry. Our main goal is to provide early exposure to our students about the actual working experience in industries. Practical knowledge is equally important as Theoretical knowledge! The students record their experiences in a training report to be submitted after the training The placement training is usually conducted in the month of May-June every year. The placement cell co-ordinates the training program as follows

First Year
