Introduction

 

Introduction to Biochemical Engineering

 

This suggested schedule is based on that used long ago by Prof. Bungay for R.P.I. courses:
CHME-443 Introduction to Biochemical Engineering 
CHME-643 Biochemical Engineering
with graduate students attending all lectures while undergraduate students substituted web-based sessions for some class lectures. A different sequence and other topics on this flash drive are highly likely to suit courses at other institutions.

Week 1: Course Introduction, Review Prerequisites Week 8: Enzymology, Immobilized enzymes 
Week 2: Biotechnology Overview, Genetic Engineering Week 9: Scale Up
Week 3: Sterilization Week 10: Product Recovery, Early Steps
Week 4: Mass Transfer and Mixing Week 11: Ion Exchange, Membranes, Crystallization
Week 5: Batch Bioprocesses Week 12: Chromatography, Freeze Drying, Other
Week 6: Continuous Processes Week 13: Drying, Disposables
Week 7: Mixed Cultures Week 14: Biosensors
