Dept. of Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Research Information Attachments

Overview of the Department

Quality Assurance Post Graduation Specialization programme was established in the year 2009 at KLE College of Pharmacy, Belagavi to cater the needs of Pharma Industry.  As QA is the heart of pharma industry we mainly emphasize on training our students to understand the functions of quality assurance, documentation, control the manufacturing process, assuring the quality of the products and recognize regulatory requirements of different regulatory bodies.
This department deals with Quality assurance and covers all aspects from design, development, production, installation, servicing and documentation. The two key principal characters of QA are “Fit for purpose” (the product should be suitable for the intended purpose) and “right first time” (mistakes should be eliminated) Quality assurance includes regulation of the quality of raw materials assemblies, product and components, services related to the production and management, production and inspection process.


More than 120 students have successfully completed their Post-Graduation with excellent results and are well placed in good position in pharma sector through campus selection or on self-approach in India and abroad.

Well-trained faculties with vast experience in academics and research ensure the quality of education and training to the students. The department conducts research in the area of analytical method development, nano-technology, formulation development, poly-herbal formulation and its method development by QbD techniques.
The key quality assurance areas are product development, vender development, manufacturing process development, packing design, quality design and market complaints.
