Chemistry and Chemical Engineering


Biochemical engineering

This course introduces the basic principles of bioprocess engineering and highlights the similarities and differences with chemical engineering. Without going into the fundamentals, it proposes an overview of the techniques for fermentation as well as product purification (DownStream Processing)

Bioprocesses and downstream processing

This course aims at a more advanced coverage of the basic aspects discussed in module ChE-311. It is however of a stand-alone nature, and even students who have little knowledge on - but a keen interest in - (bio)process engineering shall benefit as well from this module.
