Certificate in Pharmaceutical Technology

Who is the program recommended for?

The Certificate in Pharmaceutical Technology is designed to educate professionals and provide them with the skills required to work in the pharmaceutical field, with particular emphasis on the engineering aspects of drug manufacturing, pharmaceutical production, pharmaceutical development, and pharmaceutical operations. The students will not only be provided with an overview of the pharmaceutical industry, including information about drug discovery and development, FDA requirements, approval processes and the methodologies used by industry to comply with these regulations, drug dosage forms, and the role of key operational units in drug manufacturing processes, but they will also be presented with the fundamentals of the drug development cycle and the unit operations typically associated with drug manufacturing, including their quantitative and design aspects.

What will I learn?

  • Principles of Pharmaceutical Engineering :  Overview of the pharmaceutical industry.
  • Pharmaceutical Unit Operations: Processing of Liquid and Dispersed Phase Systems which primarily examines engineering aspects of the pharmaceutical processes.
  • Validation and Regulatory Issues in the Pharmaceutical Industry  with Information about drug discovery and development, FDA regulations, approval process and methodologies used by industry to comply with these regulations, drug dose forms, and the role of key operational units in drug manufacturing processes.
  • Pharmaceutical Unit Operations: Solids Processing which examines methodologies, both applied and fundamental, to analyze and scale up manufacturing pharmaceutical processes involving solids processing.

Why Study Pharmaceutical Technology at NJIT?

The graduate certificate’s narrow focus allows you to dig deep into this specific topic, and start applying your knowledge sooner. You’ll learn from NJIT’s distinguished professors and instructors. The Certificate in Pharmaceutical Technology yields a stand-alone credential, which is a milestone in its own right, and it is also a springboard to the PhEn Master’s degree.

Prerequisites

An undergraduate degree in chemical engineering or mechanical engineering, with an undergraduate cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is usually required. Applicants with: (1) a science degree, (2) an engineering degree in a discipline other than chemical or mechanical engineering, or (3) a GPA below 3.0 but at least 2.8, may be conditionally admitted to the program. Conditions may involve completion of a bridge program designed on a case-by-case basis.

Related Degree Programs

All credits for the Pharmaceutical Management Certificate can be applied in its entirety to the NJIT MS in Pharmaceutical Engineering.

Take Note

Check the course descriptions for more information. Some course has perquisites and must be taken in order.
