I am genuinely delighted to express my views on Indira Gandhi Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Bhubaneswar, famously known as IGIPS. This sanctum sanctorum was founded in the Year 1987 by Dr. G.C.Nayak, a dynamic, suave and erudite personalityin the pharmacy education and profession. Right from its inception and progressively, the institute has been providing excellent and highly prolific Pharmacy education in D. Pharm, B. Pharm and M. Pharm disciplines with provable records of students’ employment in all areas of pharmaceutical sciences including Production and Quality assurance, Marketing, Research and Development, Academics as well as entrepreneurship across organizations, universities, industries of national and international repute.
Situated near the picturesque and ever peaceful EkamraKanan in the heart of Bhubaneswar, among other Government establishments and institutions, IGIPS draws students from across India every year. Internally, the state-of-the-art infrastructure, highly qualified and experienced doctorate professors, the most advanced pedagogy with interactive class planning, along with the Management's proper guidance have made IGIPS a learning centre of excellence. Extracurricular activities, literary events, sports are held regularly in the institute with the purpose of making the students future leaders in the society. Besides, the institute maintains zero tolerance towardsragging and other indiscipline and because of excellent teaching, our students qualify GPAT Examinations and take admissions in top-ranked institutes like NIPER almost every year. Other initiatives like industrial training, study tours, conferences, faculty development Programs, workshops and seminars participation are also given priority to the students and faculty. IGIPS alumni are serving as Drug Inspectors, Govt. analysts and other health personnel in most public health sectors like PHC, CHC etc. For this reason, IGIPS has become a highly sought-after institute under OSBP and BPUT, Odisha for over three decades. I wish the institute all success in its future.
