CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING)
Chemical Engineering is a discipline associated with the production of biological related entities including but not limiting to biopharmaceuticals, biometabolites, biofunctional metabolites, biofuels, design and operation of fermentation systems, development of food processing systems, application and testing of product separation technologies, design of instrumentations to monitor and control biological processes, and many more.
Like other engineering disciplines, Chemical Engineering students in UniMAP are trained in the application of engineering sciences and problem solving techniques. What separates them from other engineers is their understanding of how every engineering field relates to living systems. With the rapid growth of biologically based technologies, bioprocss engineers are uniquely qualified to solve problems of today and tomorrow. The demand for bioprocess engineers continues to increase. They provide a bridge between the research laboratory activities and the economics, and large scale commercial implementation of biotechnologies.
