Program Description

The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Technology (PMT) program is a specialized chemical technology program designed to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical and related industries (cosmetics, food, plastics, custom chemicals, research centers, pilot plants etc.). The PMT curriculum prepares students to work in manufacturing, research and development and quality control and quality assurance departments of pharmaceutical, cosmetics and related chemical industries. Today’s industrial environment requires technicians well-trained in state-of-the-art instruments, computer methods, safety protocols and federal and state government regulations.

The PMT program provides a solid foundation in liberal arts and sciences combined with specialized training in the field. Students also have the option of transferring to science and engineering bachelor’s programs or to pharmacy schools to continue their education. The program articulates with SUNY Empire State College. Visit the Transfer Planning website for details.
