Leerdoelen The student passing the course:
1. Has insights into how certain basic principles govern product development in the pharma and food industry;
2. Can retrieve relevant information on a specific product or process from various sources (internet, patent literature, scientific literature)
3. Integrate scientific and technical information on a particular product in a coherent written overview.
Omschrijving This course unit will introduce the participants into the world of food/pharma product design from an industrial perspective. Participants will hear about several basic principles that govern the development of a specific food or pharmaceutical product. Using several real-life examples, the experts will explain how scientific principles dictate product development. The lectures will be given by experts working in the food and/or pharma industry.

The lectures/presentations will be videotaped and made available to the participants after each meeting on Nestor.
Entreevoorwaarden The course unit assumes prior knowledge acquired from Organic chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, and/or the degree programmes Chemical Engineering (CE), Chemistry or Industrial Engineering and Management, PPT track.

Students of the IEM-PPT & CE programs will have a priority for this course. There is a maximum of 32 students for this course.
Opmerkingen The assessment comprises two extensive case reports one on a food product and one on a pharma product. Feedback on the first report has to be used in the second report. The reports have to give a detailed description of a given product and the science behind this product.

The reports need to meet the following minimum criteria:
1. Well structured, well organized, figures of sufficient quality;
2. Exceeds the minimum criteria with respect to length, use of references, reference to patents etc.;
3. Clear argumentation using references, arguments supported by facts from literature/patents;
4. All questions that were posed in the assignment are addressed;
5. Proficient English;
6. Proper citations and referring (no plagiarism);
7. Proper reference list.

Each report counts for 50% to the final grade.
