Fundamentals of Bioprocessing for Engineers

IMG_0084

UPCOMING PROGRAM DATES:  Feb 26-Mar 1, 2018; July 24-27, 2018

A broad understanding of biomanufacturing processes and specialty equipment is essential for robust facility design, start-up and maintenance. Due to the specialized nature of each unit operation however, many employees never develop this broader understanding. WPI’s intensive, four-day Fundamentals of Bioprocessing for Engineers training provides this critical overview of the process, the function of each piece of equipment, and how that equipment is used within the process. Participants will engage in hands-on experiences that lend a deeper understanding of the interplay between the process and the mechanics of the equipment—all within a pilot-scale laboratory setting.
