Pharmaceutical Engineering (Biopharmaceutics)
Programme Code: 081102    Duration 4 years
Educational Objectives:
Objective 1: [Foundations] The major aims to train the students to systematically study biological sciences, chemistry and pharmacy and related courses, and to master the solid theory, knowledge and skills in molecular biology, fermentation technology, drug development, drug formulation, drug analysis and inspection techniques, pharmacy administration and pharmaceutical marketing. The students should finally become the talents in bio-pharmaceutical research and development, and biopharmaceutical manufacturing process and product quality control and production management.
Objective 2: [Professional Knowledge] Students are trained to solve practical problems for industrial needs through creative use of professional knowledge in bio-pharmaceutical production processes, quality control, technological innovation and production management.
Objective 3: [Teamwork/Leadership] Students should possess communication and team collaboration capabilities, and thus can have leadership skills in production and management of biological drug and bio-pharmaceuticals.
Objective 4: [Engineered Systems] Students should be trained to correctly view the enormous impact of bio-pharmaceutical technology and production in daily life and human health,
Objective 5: [Societal Impact] Students should be trained to maintain a clear awareness of their duties, and be competitive and responsible in a globalizing environment.
Objective 6: [Global Awareness] Undergraduates will be trained to be the senior bio-pharmaceutical engineers and technical personals. Bio-pharmaceutical undergraduates should be capable of working in related pharmaceutical companies, bio-engineering companies, food companies, biopharmaceutical institutes, Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), Entry-exit Inspection & Quarantine of the People's Republic of China (CCIQ) and State Food and Drug Administration (sFDA) and other departments as well as engineering design institutes to be engaged in research and development of biopharmaceuticals, biological products and bio-engineering products, analytic technology, process engineering design and technical management. Undergraduates can also continue to accept further education to be a graduate or to the education sector to engage in teaching and scientific research work. They also have the capability of life-long learning.
