This is a two year full-time course (Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance) was established in the year 2012. The objective was to train the pharmacy graduates in Quality Assurance to cater the ever-increasing need of pharmaceutical industry and academia. The course approved by Pharmacy Council of India, New Delhi, AICTE New Delhi and affiliated to RTMNU, Nagpur. The curriculum includes the basic elements of Quality Assurance, using the “Systems” approach as it applies to industry, starting with raw materials, through the stages of on-line production and packaging, to finished products and legislation. Emphasis is placed on an industrial orientation, together with laboratory skills and techniques required in industry. The Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance department housing all latest equipments required to conduct the practicals as per the curriculum and research to meet the current Industry demands. The department has qualified, dedicated, devoted faculty and are actively involved in the research activities.
