It gives me a great pleasure to introduce our institute MAEER’s Maharashtra Institute of Pharmacy (MIP), Pune which is established in the year 1997 under the dynamic leadership of Hon. Prof. (Dr.) V.

Our college offers four years full time B. Pharm. course and two years full time M. Pharm. course (Quality Assurance Techniques, Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Pharmaceutics). In the span of 12 years MIP has proven its excellent academic standards in University of Pune. Our students are securing highest ranks in the merit list of University of Pune. The achievements of the student of Maharashtra Institute of Pharmacy, Pune, are praiseworthy not only for the excellent academic achievements, but also for their achievements in sports, extracurricular and co-curricular activities.

Our devoted faculty, committed staff and students contribute to make our institute a great pride. Well planned infrastructural facilities and laboratories provide students an inspiring environment. A well stacked library which has vast collection of books, journals (National & International) and educational CDs. gives a brighter edge.

We have a separate placement as well counseling cell in which we guide the students to solve their difficulties and problems. The placement cell invites many reputed pharmaceutical companies for the campus recruitments. Our students are pursuing their career in different segments of pharmaceutical field like research & development, production, academics, marketing, and business etc. Activities such as pharmacy student interaction (PSI) club give our students a platform to showcase their extra-curricular activities. With all this you will find learning at MAEER’s MIP, Pune as a rewarding experience.
