Prerequisite
Basic Concepts of Transport Phenomena (Mass transfer and heat transfer) and Reaction kinetics for bioreactor.
Rationale
This subject is an integration of chemical engineering with biological systems. It deals with kinetics of biological reactions, mass and heat transfer concepts and transport phenomena occuring within biological reactors.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Develop major understanding of biological cellular systems
2. Evaluate kinetics of biological reactions with the basic understanding in heat and mass transfer
3. Understand transport phenomena in biological reactors
4. Apply the concepts of various unit operations in downstreaming of biological products.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, Pictures, graphics for better understanding theory – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus of Bioprocess and Biochemical Engineering is covered.
