Architecture, Engineering and Construction
Pharmaceutical engineering includes all parts of drug manufacturing right from designing a novel facility to optimizing manufacturing processes and perfecting packaging solutions. One of the most vital difference between pharmaceutical engineering and other branches of engineering is the pharmaceutical industry's strict requirements for good manufacturing practice (GMP). To excel as a pharmaceutical engineer, you must be able to handle the increasingly complex risk-based GMP demands from early conceptual design, qualification and validation to practical development implementation and execution of a pharmaceutical quality system.
Pharmaceutical construction is unique in that it involves sensitive materials and environments incorporating specialty equipment related to producing and housing drugs and medications. It also requires specific means and methods to construct in open operating facilities. Traditionally, drug manufacturers have built inflexible, cost-prohibitive production facilities that take three to seven years to complete and even longer to validate for production.
