On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the Faculty of Pharmacy, UiTM, I welcome you to the home page of the Faculty of Pharmacy, UiTM, Malaysia. I hope this avenue will serve as a gateway to know us better and foster future connection.
The Faculty of Pharmacy, UiTM has been founded on 1st August 2001. We started off with Diploma in Pharmacy and had our first batch of Bachelor in Pharmacy (Honours) in 2002. Currently, we are also offering postgraduate program by research like Master of Science and PhD and Master in Pharmacy (Clinical) and Master in Pharmacy (Clinical Practice) to cater the demand of pharmacists especially from Ministry of Health. In the digitize era, the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) revolution is already re-defining how we manufacture ‘things’ today.

Hence, optimization of computer systems and automation are at the core of this revolution, there is the need to change the mindset of our future pharmacists and researchers. As the Dean of the faculty, I find that it is a great challenge for the teaching and learning process in pharmacy area.
