Niveau(s) master
Voertaal Engels
Periode semester II b

Uitgebreide vaknaam Bioprocess Technology
Leerdoelen At the end of the course the student is able to:
1. dissect a biotechnology process into its individual units
2. design a biotechnological process given the substrate, micro-organism, and product
3. synthesize a working plan on how to implement a biotechnological process
4. evaluate the design with respect to alternative production processes
5. present (oral presentation and written report) his/her results to the right stakeholders
Omschrijving From substrate to a product using biotechnological fermentation processes is the main topic of the course. In this module, different fermentation processes will be discussed: batch, fed-batch, continuous fermentations. Pre-treatment of substrates and product recovery from the fermentation broth (downstream processing, DSP) will be integrated in the course.
