From this survey it is come to know that 24% students are daily user of computers, 30% students used computer once in a month, 16% twice in a month and 14% thrice in a month. one important aspect observe that all students (100%) are aware of computer applications in pharmaceutical field. Most (78%) had home computers; however, 20% said they relied on a school-based computer laboratory. Software use ranged from a high of 96% (MS WORD) to a low of 4% (Statistical Package). In case of MS-Office- 86% students have basic skill, 13% have intermediate skill and 1% has an expert skill.
