Pharmaceutical Science and Technology

The Pharmacy Science and Technology Study Program examines science and technology in the pharmaceutical field, including various aspects related to pharmaceutical products, starting from the search/discovery, processing and developing raw materials and ended as ready-to-use pharmaceutical. In another word, this study program is oriented to the development of pharmacy science and technology or its approach mainly focused on the needs of research, development, production and inspection of pharmaceutical products and medical devices. product oriented .

Competence of Graduates

Graduates of the Bachelor program (S1) of Pharmacy Science and Technology are expected to be able to fill the needs of the society. These needs encourage the Graduates in having the ability to apply and develop science and technology and to be able to carry out work duties and functions in the fields of production, quality control, research, and development of pharmaceutical products.

Since 2006 the Pharmacy Science and Technology Study Program of the ITB School of Pharmacy has opened an International Class by selection to attract prospective students from abroad who are interested in continuing their studies at the ITB School of Pharmacy.
