Aims

This module extends the biochemical engineering knowledge of students by providing basic understanding of the latest developments in bioprocess development, modelling, monitoring and control. To provide chemical engineers with a background knowledge in the area of bioprocess development with emphasis on biopharma , latest research developments in bioprocess modelling and control. These areas are exceedingly sought after by the (bio)pharmaceutical industries.

Outline Of Syllabus

Quality by Design and Process Analytical Technologies as a demonstration of structured approach to bioprocess development, aseptic sampling, latest measurement devices for biomass concentration analyses, data-based modelling techniques in bioprocess modelling, process development, supervision and control.
Tutorials in small groups will allow discussions about the latest advanced monitoring and control techniques that the students will read up about and present on. Students have self-study opportunity from text books, handouts, scientific papers and support material on VLE.
