Course Summary

Biochemical engineering concerns the use of biological organisms or processes by manufacturing industries to generate the products of the future, from novel therapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies for treating cancer, vaccines and hormones, to new environmentally friendly biofuels. It is also essential in many other fields, such as the safe manufacture of food and drink and the removal of toxic compounds from the environment. This is a highly multidisciplinary subject which integrates engineering and bioscience knowledge.

This programme will provide you with the skills you need to start an exciting career in the bioprocess industries, or continue research in the area of bioprocessing or industrial biotechnology. Our optional modules also allow you to expand your horizons to include specific product areas, such as pharmaceuticals, and other essential career skills, such as business skills.

Biochemical Engineering concerns the use of biological organisms or processes by manufacturing industries. It is a multidisciplinary subject, requiring the integration of engineering and bioscience knowledge to design and implement processes used to manufacture a wide range of products; from novel therapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies for treating cancer, vaccines and hormones, to new environmentally-friendly biofuels. It is also essential in many other fields, such as the safe manufacture of food and drink and the removal of toxic compounds from the environment.

This course will provide you with the skills you need to start an exciting career in the bioprocess industries, or continue research in the area of bioprocessing or industrial biotechnology. There is a great demand for biochemical engineers in industry worldwide. This programme gives you a professional basis for a career in bioprocessing, biotechnology or biochemical engineering in a variety of sectors. Students can also exit with Pgdip awards.
