Short Courses in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.

Short Course Advanced Course Downstream Processing
  • Jul 2016
  • Not specified
  • 5 days

The challenge for biochemical engineers is to design compact and clean processes to efficiently separate instable products, such as recombinant proteins, from dilute complex fermentation broths to the required pharmaceutical degree of purity. Therefore, the quantitative systematic design of integrated downstream processes is the general theme of this Advanced Course. The aim of the course is to provide the tools for the participants to be able to quantitatively and systematically design an integrated downstream process.
