CL4538 - Bioprocess Engineering
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Important industrial fermentation and microbial processes; biochemical and molecular
biological concepts reviewed; enzyme kinetics; microbial growth and fermentation kinetics;
batch, fed-batch and continuous culture modelling; aeration and mass transfer; immobilised
cell culture; operation, monitoring and control of fermentation systems; downstream
processing; bioprocess design and economics.
- demonstrate knowledge of fundamental biological concepts and explain the important
biological processes occurring in biotechnology and environmental waste-treatment
- recognise and apply fundamental kinetic models to fit experimental biological growth
- use design equations and kinetic models to determine important operational characteristics
- apply and develop fundamental stoichiometric models to characterise bio-reactions.
- end of semester exam (50% - 70%)
- on-course assessment, some of which may be invigilated (30% - 50%).
