Fundamentals of Bioprocessing for Engineers

UPCOMING PROGRAM DATES: July 23-26, 2019

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, equipment, and general foundational elements of Bioprocessing. 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.
