484/584 FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEERING
Description : An introduction to the characterization of
microorganisms, fermentation pathways, unit processes in fermentation,
biochemical kinetics, and batch and continuous fermentation. The basic
engineering concepts of fermentation, separation, control, and operations
will be discussed. Students enrolling in CHE 584 will be held to a higher
standard than those enrolling in CHE 484.
484L/584L BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY
Description: Laboratory experiments in biochemical engineering. May
include fermentation, dissolved oxygen mass transfer measurements,
bioseparations, and other experiments to correlate with selected lecture
topics. Students enrolling in CHE 585L will be held to a higher standard
than those enrolling in CHE 485L.
