Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology Bioprocess with Honours

  Study Mode FULL TIME
  Level UNDER-GRADUATE
  Duration 4 Years
  Tution Fees N/A

Chemical Engineers with a focus in Bioprocess work at the forefront of biological and engineering sciences through the conversion of biological materials into other forms needed by mankind. Application areas commonly associated with bioprocess engineering include the production of biofuels, design and operation of fermentation systems, development of food processing system, application and testing of product separation technologies, the design of instrumentation to monitor and control biological processes, and much more.

Like other engineering disciplines, bioprocess engineers are trained in the application of engineering sciences and problem-solving techniques. What separate them from other engineers is their understanding of how every engineering field relates to living materials. With the rapid growth of biologically based technologies, bioprocess engineers are uniquely qualified to solve the problems of today and tomorrow. The demand for bioprocess engineers continues to grow. They provide a bridge between the research lab and the economic, large-scale implementation of biotechnologies and food production systems.

Bioprocess Engineering is about using biology for cleaner and more efficient manufacturing process, and for the design of better products such as;

  • Detergents
  • Confectionary and Ice Cream
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Vitamin
  • Cheese
  • Clean Water

The technology used includes:

  • Fermentation
  • Separation

This is a rapidly increasing demand for engineering graduates with an appreciation and knowledge of the biological sciences. They help to create new technology for food and agricultural systems by improving processes, materials and products. The main areas are machinery and equipment, soil and water, structures, food storage, and food processing. For example the manufacture of many pharmaceutical products, healthcare products, medicines, vaccines, and new material rely upon the application of biology to industrial processes.
