If you've had little or no formal training or background in chemical or biological engineering, join expert Dale Gyure as he lays out the basic chemical and biochemical concepts you need to know and gives you the confidence to apply them. With this solid foundation, you’ll be able to think and approach and solve problems the way chemical engineers do to the best advantage of your organization and your career.
Learn the fundamentals
In three days, you’ll understand the principles of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer as well as applications and examples. You’ll explore depth and tangential flow filtration, extraction, distillation and chromatography, and centrifugation. You’ll also gain a firm grounding in the principles of bioreactor design and operation, process control and optimization, plant design and process economics, and much more.
This course is short on theory and calculation and long on practice and application. You’ll be actively involved in problem worksheets that illustrate the fundamentals and allow you to apply what you learn in your workplace, using approaches professional chemical engineers rely on.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- Basic chemical and biochemical engineering concepts
- The principles underlying:
- Heat and mass transfer
- Fluid flow
- Chemical and (bio) processing
- Separations and purification
- (Bio) reactor design
- Process economics
- Using mass and energy balances to assess the performance of unit operations
- Understand how process equipment is designed and works
- Estimating if a chemical process can economically produce the product you want
You should attend if …
This course will be especially valuable to technical professionals involved in chemical and/or biomaterials processing or in developing process technology. Those who should attend include life scientists, chemists, mechanical engineers and process/research technicians in:
- Process and product development
- (Bio) chemical entity manufacturing
- Commercialization and start-up of new products and facilities
- Evaluation of (bio) chemical manufacturing technologies
- And other related fields
