SPECIALISED STUDY PACKAGES - AUTUMN

Applied Lipid and Protein Biotechnology

Based on the theoretical foundation obtained previously, this course will provide the students with practical skills in lipid analysis and quality control, processing, refining, and modification. Furthermore, the students will obtain practical skills in protein optimization and expression, including characterization of enzymatic activities. In addition, the students will apply methods for analysis of glycosylation.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent, and the courses ‘Lipid Biotechnology‘ and ‘Protein and Carbohydrate Biotechnology

  • Applied Lipid Biotechnology 5 ECTS
  • Applied Protein Biotechnology 10 ECTS

Biomacromolecules Lipid

Based on the basic knowledge of the structure and properties of the main bio-macro molecules these courses will extend the students’ knowledge especially focusing on the sources and production of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins for use in medical (red), environmental (green), and industrial (white) biotechnology.

​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent including organic chemistry, basic unit operations and 15 ects within molecular biology/biochemistry/biotechnology

  • Lipid Biotechnology 5 ECTS
  • Protein and Carbohydrate Biotechnology 10 ECTS

Biomaterial Engineering

Based on basic knowledge on physiology, cell biology and applied materials science, this package introduces principles and methods to engineer bioactive materials for biomedical applications.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or Health Technology or equivalent including cell biology and biochemistry.

  • Biofabrication 10 ECTS
  • Tissue Engineering 5 ECTS

Energy and Storage

Worldwide goals of reducing and phasing out the use of fossil fuels in the coming decades are to a large extent based on expectations of replacement of these fuels with renewable sources. Due to the intermittent pack nature of many of the renewable electricity sources, this transition is faced with large challenges concerning the adaption of these. This package is aimed at giving an introduction into future and emerging technologies for energy conversion and storage in this field.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent. A BSc course in microbiology is recommended.

  • Energy Conversion and Storage Technologies 10 ECTS
  • Energy Systems 5 ECTS

Environmental Technology

Global resources can be conserved by extracting or destroying environmentally troublesome compounds from waste products. This package therefore focuses on designing such chemical, physical and biological processes. The theories behind the unit operations will be expanded into the non-standardized chemical, physical and biological conditions present in such media. This will be used to understand how to design, control and - in particular - optimize processing plants. Examples include domestic and industrial air and wastewater treatment.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent. A BSc course in microbiology is recommended.

  • Air Treatment Technologies 5 ECTS
  • Water Treatment Technologies 10 ECTS

Process Technology

The package is combining theoretical knowledge on heat and mass transfer, sensors, data acquisition, and process regulation, together with laboratory exercises based on typical physical, chemical, and biotechnological systems. In the exercises, students are developing physical/chemical sensor applications e.g. with feedback regulation, and, in cases where transport processes are involved, these are simulated mathematically.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent, including calculus, linear algebra, physical chemistry, physics and process control (such as Praktisk Regulering og Instrumentering)

  • Sensors and Process Control 10 ECTS
  • Transport Phenomena 5 ECTS

 


 

SPECIALISED STUDY PACKAGES - SPRING

Biorefining Technology

The package in Borefining Technologies will give a thorough overview of the biorefining concept and in depth knowledge on essential technologies used in modern biorefineries.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent

  • Experimental Biorefining 5 ECTS
  • Integrated Biorefining Technologies 10 ECTS

Chemical Processing

This package focuses on the application of advanced chemical unit operations towards the synthesis of both bulk chemicals, fine chemicals, and commodities. Different reactor strategies will be discussed both theoretically and  will be tested in the laboratory.
​Prerequisites:Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent, including organic chemistry.

  • Modern Chemical Process Technologies 10 ECTS
  • Platform Chemicals and Synthesis in Continous Flow 5 ECTS

Medical Biotechnology

Medical Biotechnology is an expanding field, which brings basic discoveries to the bedside. Using knowledge from our immune system new intervention strategies can be developed. In this package we include aspects, from development of biologicals to production for  clinical use and regulatory aspects.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology or equivalent. The courses Lipid Biotechnology and Protein and Carbohydrate Biotechnology are recommended.

  • Immunological Biotechnology 10 ECTS
  • Biomolecular Interactions 5 ECTS

Plastic Materials

This package aims to elucidate the properties of polymeric materials, advanced materials, and nanomaterials with a special emphasis on the advanced polymer synthesis and processing.
​Prerequisites: Bachelor´s degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or equivalent, including the courses polymer chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry and polymer chemistry

  • Advanced Polymer and Nanomaterials 10 ECTS
  • Plastic Engineering 5 ECTS
