The Pharmacy department of BITS Pilani is one of the few early schools of Pharmacy in India. Established in 1950, under the able leadership of (Late) Prof. M. L. Schroff, Father of Pharmacy Education in India, it blossomed into one of the most sought after Schools of Pharmacy in India due to its broad-based education system and university-industry linkages, which is the hallmark of BITS, Pilani.
In the year of 2011, the Department of Pharmacy has completed 60 years of
its existence as a premier institution in the field of Pharmacy Education
and Research in India and abroad. Alumni are
well placed in India as well as abroad in various pharmaceutical companies,
government organizations like drug control, research laboratories, etc., and
in several well-known academic institutions.
