About the Department


The pharmaceutical sector occupies an important place in the economy of Ukraine and has the potential for further development. The pharmaceutical industry is in dire need of maintenance personnel who have a fundamental knowledge in chemistry, physics, biology, pharmacy and modern approaches to quality management of medicines, rules and regulations GMP, pharmaceutical development, industrial technology of drugs. Join the Department of Pharmaceutical Industry where we train specialists for prospective and economically attractive pharmaceutical industry.


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".

Ph.D., Professor Alla Strokan, headed the Department of Organic and Analytical Chemistry. In 2006, the name of the department was changed on the Department of Pharmaceutical Industry.

Since 2007 the department is headed by Honored master of sciences and engineering of Ukraine, PharmD, Professor Vladyslav Strashnyi.


Mission Statement

Economic well-being and improving the nation's health are inextricably linked to the achievement of the pharmaceutical industry in the production of competitive products. The solution of this problem is impossible without the training of sufficient qualified specialists for the pharmaceutical industry of Ukraine.

Production of national pharmaceutical industry holds leading positions in the Ukrainian pharmaceutical market and confidently enters to foreign markets. Such success is associated with the constant introduction of international norms and standards, above all, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Implementation of GMP requirements should be carried out by qualified personnel who develops and performs the system of Quality Assurance of medicinal products.

The skill level of workers is one of the main factors that significantly affect the overall efficiency of production, so their training and creating opportunities for training has become more and more important. That is why the faculty staff of the Department of Pharmaceutical Industry regards its main objective in training highly qualified specialists for pharmaceutical production, taking into account all the realities of modern society.

Formation of the future specialist includes not only the combination of theoretical material and practical skills in training laboratories, but also directly the passage of general engineering, technological and externship practical works at leading enterprises of Ukraine: PJSC "FF" Darnitsa", JSC "Farmak", Corporation "Arterіum",  PJSC SIC “Borshchahivskiy CPP”and  JV "Sperco-Ukraine".
