In 2001 at the Faculty of Chemical Technologies the Regional office of the National University of Pharmacy was organized in accordance with the relevant agreement on joint training of students. Soon, in 2002 the basis of modern Department of Pharmaceutical Industry – the Department of Organic and Analytical Chemistry was created. The objective of the department was to train students of all specialties of the university in these disciplines, as well as to create conditions for the development of new specialty "Pharmaceuticals technologies".
