    The goalThe goal of course is acquiring knowledge about modern methodology in bioprocess design by use of specialized software. It is done on real examples from biochemical and pharmaceutical industry. Students have to independently work out preliminary project scheme. ;
    The outcomeStudents: (i) learn to analyze complex problems, design and outline process scheme of the biochemical and pharmaceutical processes with basic equipment sizing, (ii) learn to apply software packages SuperPro Designer and CHEMCAD specialized in process design in chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical and environmental engineering, (iii) acquire needed competencies to work in the engineering team, (iv) acquire communication skills for clear formulation and presentation of the task, work and solutions. ;
    Contents of lectures; The course introduces students to the contemporary design of real processes in biochemical and pharmaceutical engineering. In addition the students learn to apply two specialized software packages CHEMCAD and SuperPro Designer used to design a wide range of processes in the chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, and environmental engineering. A few selected examples of complex industrial processes (such as the production of insulin, monoclonal antibodies, etc.) are analyzed from the perspective of the concept of choice, selection and equipment sizing and synthesis, optimization and process management with simulation on the computer. This course provides development and work out of the preliminary project schemes with the use of software packages. ; ;
