Ⅰ. Program Objective

Biopharmaceutics is an emerging cross-disciplinary area that has revolutionized the traditional industry and research in the 21th century. Students with training in Biopharmacetics are highly desirable for pharmaceutical industry in research, development, production, testing and quality control as well as academic research in biochemistry, biotechnology and pharmaceutical engineering. Our goal is to provide students with solid foundation in Chemical, Biological and Pharmaceutical Science; versatile skills in Biotechnology, Nano-technology and Modern Pharmaceutical Technology; and broad knowledge of multiple bio-pharmaceutical related fields as competitive and independent researchers or scientists.

 

Ⅱ. Learning Outcomes

Students will have a solid understanding of basic knowledge of chemistry, biology and medicine and receive training in pharmaceutical engineering. Graduates are qualified for jobs in pharmaceutical research and development, and will play a key role in the technology transformation.

Graduates should be given the following knowledge and abilities: 

1. Master chemistry, biology, medicine and other basic theories and knowledge;

2. Master the basic principle and experimental skills of biotechnology, nanotechnology, and modern pharmaceutical technology.

3. Be familiar with the national laws and regulations, guidelines and intellectual property policies in Biomedical industry, to understand the new developments in biomedical technology, the dynamic and prospects, the development of bio-pharmaceutical industry; 

4. Skilled use of network information technology, with a strong literature search, reading and written skills in English; 

5. Has a certain experimental design, experimental operation, result analysis, thesis writing, and academic exchange capacity; 

6. Certain research and development capabilities of biological drugs.

 

Ⅲ. Program Highlights

This is a student-oriented-program with the objective to motivate students’ interests in biopharmaceutic profession, and maximize students’ potential in research and creativity. The goal of the program is to produce students for modern professionals for biomedical industry with focus on the biotechnology medicine and special interest in the nanomedicine.
