If Bangalore College of Pharmacy was to be defined in one sentence, it would be: An Institute with a Cause. Under the Bangalore Education Trust, Bangalore Group of Institutions established its first educational endeavor in the year 2009 through the Bangalore Technological Institute that offers unparalleled engineering education to students. Since then, the Bangalore Group of Institutions has instituted 2 colleges dedicated to nursing–The Florida School and College of Nursing and Gangothri School and College of Nursing, 2016, and the Bangalore college of Pharmacy in 2016. The Bangalore College of Pharmacy currently offers Diploma in Pharmacy (D.Pharm), Bachelors in Pharmacy (B.Pharm), and Pharmacy (PharmD).
Bangalore Group of Institution aims at eradicating the evil of cancer through the establishment of Bangalore College of Pharmacy. Supporting this cause, the Government of India has provided 60 lakhs to the college to fund its research activities. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Nanda and Dr. Perumal, the labs have done astounding accomplishments.
Housing 12 labs exclusively for Pharmacy, Bangalore Group of Institution have fostered fruitful tie-ups with Reddy’s Labs and Nova Pharmaceuticals.
Unparalleled Infrastructure and Amenities
Sitting in a plush Wi-Fi enabled 16acre green campus, Bangalore College of Pharmacy is a 46,000 sq.ft. block that has a boys’ hostel with 650pax and a girls’ hostel with 430pax capacity. With sufficient titles from various publishers the institute’s library has a voluminous collection of books, covering all subjects including reference work to meet the information needs of the students and faculty. The ambiance and proximity to reach out in choosing books and software installed are of much help to the users of the library facility. In addition to providing prescribed text books, volumes on topics furnishing more details and information are accessible through reference books, eBooks, journals, periodicals, and magazines. The institute also has houses a bank and an ATM exclusively for the students’ perusal.
The institute has built a BET app, wherein the teachers are asked to update the app with that day’s classroom teachings. This way, the students do not miss out valuable points and can refer to the app as and when they want. An inbuilt library offers the students to cross refer the teaching material with the material available online, thus enabling the students to widen their horizon. Since the students are unable to make edits to the material available in the app, error-free information is available to the students. The students, teachers, and the management, all go through a monthly appraisal. This exercise keeps all the stakeholders in the loop and makes the activities of the institute transparent. A testament to the efficacious teaching–learning methodology incorporated at the Bangalore College of Pharmacy is the number of students that flock to the institute for admissions. Besides students from across the nation, the institute also houses students from the Middle East and the African continent.
A Blossoming Placement Track Record
Honing the students to be excellent human beings, the institute offers cultural activities and indoor and outdoor courts for a variety of sports, NSS activities, and also proffers scholarships to deserving students. Understanding that all students aren’t alike, the institute sits all its first year students through a mandatory one-month English enhancement class. Moreover, the management insists that all classes be taken in English. This helps the students to face the much daunting interview sessions. Similarly, the in-house placement wing helps students to calm their qualms when the recruitment season is around the corner. It is this prudence from the institute’s part that corporates like Reddy’s Labs readily agrees to take the D.Pharm students under its wing. “We are proud to state that last year alone, we had 85% of successful placement, with the highest package being 23lakhs from IFCCO Tokyo. Similarly, around 200 of our students are enrolled by Honda alone. We also have giants like ColumbiaAsia, Infosys, Bosch, Sakra World Hospital, and Goldfinch hospital coming to the institute to recruit our students,” says Majesh Mohan, Director, Bangalore Group of Institution. Along the same lines, Bangalore College of Pharmacy also fosters fruitful relationships with foreign universities like Emilio Aguinaldo College, Philippines. The institute is also the recipient of the Mahatma Gandhi Foundation (Kerala) award for the “Best Care Of Students”.
Staying true to its vision—to develop BGI as a centre of excellence; impart quality education; and generate competent, skilled, and humane power to face the scientific, technological, managerial, and social challenges in the fast evolving global scenario, with high degree of credibility, integrity, ethical standards, and social concern—Bangalore Group of Institutions intends to take its cancer cause forward by raising Bangalore College of Pharmacy to greater heights.
