Practical Manual of Pharmaceutical Engineering

Availability: In stock


This practical handbook is structured to gradually give students practice doing various aspects of Pharmaceutical Engineering in which students are engaged in the entire experiments. In this way students experience not only the power that science has to reveal the workings of the natural world but also its limitations, and tentativeness of this knowledge. We believe these aspects of science literacy will help students to use and evaluate scientific knowledge as they make decisions in their personal, professional  and civic lives.
