New Graduate Certificate: Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Practices
June 15, 2006
The multi-disciplinary graduate program in pharmaceutical manufacturing engineering was developed to provide the necessary skills to engineers and others in healthcare related industries. The focus is manufacturing and the facilities needed for manufacturing, within the framework of the regulatory requirements in the pharmaceutical industry. FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) regulatory requirements include GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and QSR (Quality Systems Regulations). These FDA-regulated industries continue to expand with leading-edge products, technologies, and increasingly sophisticated manufacturing processes. Stevens will provide critical training, so that professionals can meet the major demands of the 21st century.
