Visits to Facilities/Institutes
Pre-clinical Site Visits

It’s a known fact that preclinical work sets up the base line for any clinical trial process. It is important for the people of the Clinical Research industry to know how, where, when and in what conditions the animal trials are conducted.
Students are taken on a visit to the Institute for toxicology studies where they are able to see a wide range of toxicological studies performed for pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and biotechnological and chemical industries from private and public sectors.

Bio Availability/Bio Equivalence Study Centers
BA Studies are required at the early stages of product development to compare different formulations of the same drug, to find formulation performance of drugs used in clinical trials and demonstrate safety and efficacy, before marketing a drug product. BE Studies are required to establish links between early and late clinical trial formulations, formulations used in clinical trial and stability studies, if different and clinical trial formulations and to-be-marketed drug product.

Clinical Trials Centers
Students are taken for visits to various centers where Clinical Trials are being performed to give them hands-on understanding of clinical trials process, and the roles & responsibilities of various professionals involved in Clinical Trials.

Lectures: Lectures are a traditional teaching method where instructors present information to students. This can be useful for conveying foundational knowledge, introducing concepts, and providing an overview of the aviation industry.

Case Studies: Case studies involve analyzing real or hypothetical aviation-related scenarios to develop problem-solving skills. Students examine the challenges faced by aviation organizations and explore potential solutions. This approach promotes critical thinking and the practical application of knowledge.

Group Projects: Group projects encourage collaboration and teamwork among students. They can involve tasks such as creating business plans, conducting research studies, or developing marketing strategies for aviation companies. This methodology helps students develop communication, leadership, and project management skills.

Simulations: Under Aviation management, simulations provide a virtual environment where students can make decisions and experience the consequences in a risk-free setting. These simulations replicate real-world scenarios and allow students to develop decision-making skills, strategic thinking, and problem-solving abilities.

Guest Speakers: Inviting industry professionals as guest speakers provides students with insights into real-world experiences and current practices in the aviation industry. Guest speakers can share their expertise, provide industry perspectives, and inspire students.

Internships and Field Visits: Offering internships or organizing field visits to airports, airlines, aviation organizations, or regulatory bodies allows students to gain firsthand experience and observe the practical aspects of aviation management & Logistics-Supply Chain Management. This hands-on experience can enhance their understanding of the industry.
