pharmaceutical engineering, higher education, training objective


In China, there are nearly 300 universities and colleges establishing professional of pharmaceutical engineering at present. Meanwhile, China pharmaceutical industry is sustaining rapid growth in the past 10 years. Adhering to the concept of "Study in Practice", Chinese students are cultivated to meet the requirements from twenty-first century industrial production and development of modern pharmaceutical, and they are looked forward to become qualified pharmaceutical engineers, technical backbone or management professionals. It was introduced about some exploration and adjustment for the training objectives of pharmaceutical engineering in higher education of China in the paper.
