Developing a Centre of excellence.
Shaping a better future for mankind by developing effective and socially responsible individuals and organizations.
Atmiya Institute of Pharmacy emphasizes on all round development of its students. It aims at not only producing good professionals, but also good and worthy citizens of a great country aiding in its overall progress and development.
It endeavors to treat every student as an individual, to recognize their potential and to ensure that they receive the best preparation and training for achieving their career ambitions and life goals.
The attainment of knowledge is of the highest value; it is the light, the guide in learning the ways of life which lead from falsity to truth, from ignorance to wisdom, from mortality to immortality. Since the dawn of culture and civilization in India education, whether it is primary or higher, has always been the source for gradually cultivating wisdom. Current socio-economic forces of Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization have created a global society where the ancient values have been thrown into the winds. However the general degradation of values has led only to personal discontent and heap of social-economic problems. Hence people across the globe are looking towards the system of education to infuse human values among the students so that the world remains as a place of peace, security and prosperity
- He/she will have value based knowledge with integration of process safety considerations with environmental concerns.
- Chemical engineering knowledge: apply knowledge of Heat transfer, Mass transfer, Unit process and operations for the solution of industrial engineering problems.
- Design and development of synthesis: Design novel routes of specialty chemicals and organic compounds using green chemistry approach for the sustainable environment.
- Modern technique practice: select and utilize appropriate analytical, chemical and physical techniques, resources and instruments to identify and characterize unknown chemical substances.
- Life-long learner.
