ERT 317/4 BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEERING
This course focuses on the interaction between chemical engineering, biochemistry, and microbiology. Mathematical representations of microbial systems are featured among lecture topics. Kinetic of growth, death and metabolism are also covered. Batch and continuous fermentation and the effect of agitation, mass transfer and enzyme technology are included. The laboratory exercises introduce students to the fundamental practices in biochemical engineering.
Ability to develop anzyme reactions based on its kinetics study and applied catalysis.
Ability to evaluate microbial system based on its metabolic pathways and kinetics study in batch and continuous cultures.
Ability to propose bioconversion technologies of microbial, plant and animal cell culture for the production of value-added product.
