Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
The Battery Technology for Hybrid Electric Vehicles will cover basic electrochemistry that occurs in batteries. This course will provide an introduction to batteries that are used in energy storage devices in a wide variety of engineering devices.
Crude oil is currently our most important global source of energy. This course explores oil’s vital role in the modern world and assesses some of the exciting scientific developments that could lead to sustainable alternatives to oil. Learn about living without oil is one of a series of 100-hour flexible online courses introducing fascinating topics in science.
This 6-week intensive program offers a nanotechnology lecture and a lab course in English, with site visits to 10 leading research centres, and an intensive German language course. It is directed to undergraduates of science and engineering who have completed an introduction to quantum mechanics or quantum chemistry.
Proporcionar los conocimientos sobre la tecnología de caracterización de residuos de media y baja actividad de diversa naturaleza, antes y después de su acondicionamiento, por técnicas destructivas y no destructivas, mediante la utilización de métodos radioquímicos, espectrométricos y fisico-químicos.
During experiments with process equipment in semi technical scale the possibilities and limitations of the theory are compared with the practical experiences. In addition an improved understanding of the processes, equipment design, operational conditions, measuring techniques etc. is achieved. Training in industrial report writing.
This program centers around industrial fermentation, with examples of microbial, marine and mammalian cell platforms, and is flanked by overviews on upstream and downstream processing, as well as an economic analysis. The theory on biological fundamentals, transport in vessels, design and scale up/down will be extensively applied to a case study, presenting an actual bioprocess design question. There are several guest lecturers from leading universities and industries in the bioprocess field, providing latest insights in technology innovations, non-conventional feedstocks and new bio-product categories, complemented with views from the industrial practice.
The course starts at 23 June 2014 and is aimed at post-doctorate level: PhD students, researchers, but also at engineers working in industry. It is expected that people have a finished MSc in Food Technology, Biotechnology, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering or equivalent. We assume that the course participants will have a basis on thermodynamics. After the course, the participants should be able to conduct exergetic (and mass and energy) analyses themselves.
The challenge for biochemical engineers is to design compact and clean processes to efficiently separate instable products, such as recombinant proteins, from dilute complex fermentation broths to the required pharmaceutical degree of purity. Therefore, the quantitative systematic design of integrated downstream processes is the general theme of this Advanced Course. The aim of the course is to provide the tools for the participants to be able to quantitatively and systematically design an integrated downstream process.
Driven by the societal wish to increase the safety of chemical manufacturing and continuous technological developments, microreactor technology was introduced to the toolbox of synthetic organic chemists some ten years ago.
