The Institute believes that self learning is the best means of learning, especially at the post graduate level, and accordingly, faculty should act as facilitators more than teachers. A great deal of emphasis is therefore placed on experimental learning. Students are required to work on a number of industrial and academic research projects during two years that they are on campus. In addition, teaching is heavily oriented towards case studies, presentations, quizzes, assignments, workshops and labs. A variety of seminars are organized by students and faculty members during the academic session. There is a strong belief that at the Institute in ‘learning by doing’ and in the dictum that a true pharmaceutical education goes beyond the classroom. The students are therefore exposed to technical depth of the subject and are also encouraged to participate in all professional activities.
