• Pharmaceutical engineering involves the
    systematic design, development and
    operation of process systems for the
    production of pharmaceuticals. It is a key
    engineering discipline, which combines
    knowledge of chemistry, mathematics and
    biology with engineering principles and real
    world economic considerations.
    Pharmaceutical engineers contribute to
    the production of pharmaceuticals (e.g.
    antibiotics), biopharmaceuticals (e.g.
    therapeutic peptides), vaccines, personal
    care products, nutraceuticals, cosmetics,
    cosmeceuticals and related products.
    The first two years of the academic program
    are spent developing an understanding of
    the foundation subjects of pharmaceutical
    engineering, which are increasingly put into
    practice in the third and fourth years via major
    design, research and experimental projects.
