PES College of Pharmacy established in the year 1982, offers programs that are attuned towards preparing graduates for a career in pharmaceutical industry, research, and education.
The Vision of the Institution is “ To create technologically superior and ethically strong global manpower, in the arena of Pharmacy Profession”.
PESCP understands that there are three main pain points that every pharmacy college faces. They are (i) Mediocre technical courses, (ii) Poor industry-academy interaction, and (iii) Failure of academia to attract/cultivate talent. These issues have left a gaping hole in the availability of skilled workers in the Pharmaceutical sector.
Conquering these hurdles, PESCP offers a curriculum that includes industry updates via TSDP (Total Student Development Program) classes; which is one of the components of campus-wide quality improvement program (CWQIP). To facilitate industry exposure and interaction, the college also organizes guest lectures, seminars, workshops, and frequent industrial visits. Giving due importance to research and innovation, PESCP’s PG Departments have signed MoUs with industries and with Griffith University for their R&D Projects.
