Lucknow: Lucknow University (LU) is all set to open an Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (IPS) spread over 8,170 square metres on its second campus in Jankipuram area in the capital city.

Students who are aspiring to make a career in pharmacy will soon have a dedicated government institute for the same in the state capital.

According to official sources, two self-finance courses -- Bachelor in Pharmacy (B.Pharma) with 100 seats and Diploma in Pharmacy (D.Pharma) with 60 seats -- will be offered at the institute for which 33 contractual faculties will be appointed.

The application for the two courses for academic session 2020-2021 will be invited shortly once the university receives approval from the Pharmacy Council of India.

The proposal to open the institute under the engineering faculty has received a go ahead in the university's finance committee meeting and now it will be put before the Executive Committee on June 11 for final approval.
