We are witnessing an age where a new technology obsoletes a recently bought cell phone. Technology and internet have become the central tenets of nearly every field of thought. Higher education too is not an exception and is all set for a major turnaround with respect to its objectives, medium of instruction and customization as per the need of students. Major emphasis on skill development in higher education is being felt as the world ushers into unchartered territories wherein unprecedented problems will require unprecedented solutions. Online courses have evolved as the latest fad with tech savvy students and "m-learning" or mobile learning formats becoming the new medium of instruction. Moreover, an assembly model of one-size-fits-all higher education that values the lecture over other forms of active learning is getting redundant. With all these factors in mind the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Bahra University intends to address the flux in higher education and aspirations of new generation which is much smarter and wiser to take charge of its life. We wish to incorporate the technology based newer medium of instructions into everyday life and make learning more fun than ever. The objective of the School is to facilitate students to explore their talents which could be applied in their professional life. The School aims to facilitate their pursuit of happiness in life.
