BAE 321 Bioprocessing Engineering Fundamentals Section: 001
For Engineering and non-Engineering students interested in processing, biotechnology and related disciplines, it is important to have an understanding of the basic principles behind process analysis, design and scale up. This course will provide an introduction to the interdisciplinary approach and engineering concepts behind the development of useful food, chemical, energy, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical products through transformation of biological materials (bioprocessing). Some of the relevant topics covered include the fundamentals behind units, dimensions and engineering properties, stoichiometry, data analysis and statistics, mass and energy balances, rheology, mixing, heat and mass transfer, reaction kinetics and unit operations.
