Why GIUAS Pharmaceutical Engineering Program ?

  • The global pharmaceutical industry is one of the fastest growing industrial sectors netting more than $1,400 billion in sales in 2019, with an average annual growth rate of 5-8%, providing a wide variety of career opportunities.


  • Pharmaceutical Engineering is the first program of its kind offered in Egypt, the region, and globally. Pharmaceutical Engineering is a new branch of engineering focused on discovering, formulating & manufacturing medication, as well as both analytical & quality control processes. Though there are many sectors, pharmaceutical engineering still occupies the topmost position in the hierarchy of competition. 


  • Pharmaceutical engineers are well trained regarding the basic prospects of drug discovery process and are involved in projects and researches related to the invention of more reliable, cost effective and long-term pharmaceutical solutions. They are offered unique opportunities to experience different sectors of the industry. They can therefore efficiently handle and work on biomedical industries, drugs designing & discovery facilities, R&D depts. and any of the drug manufacturing plants. They acquire immense practical knowledge & skills on subjects like drug synthesis & formulation, drug dosage forms, process engineering and mechanical engineering, handling chemical agents, and on various safety measures and equipment during their study. GIUAS Pharmaceutical engineering graduates are thus eligible to work in any of the related fields.


  • GIUAS Pharmaceutical engineering graduates are very dynamic and talented and can fit easily in different sectors.


  • This program links four disciplines; Engineering, Pharmacy, Management, and Technology.
