Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology
Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology
A strong emphasis on the mathematical description of process systems and their components, based on fundamental knowledge of natural sciences, biotechnology and chemical engineering, provides a synthesis of chemical and biochemical aspects of processing. Through course choices, focused curricula of e.g. reaction engineering, process control or bioprocess technology may be constructed.
The following general competence courses should be part of a process technology curriculum:
|28350||Process Design: Principles and Methods||10||point||Spring F3A (Tues 8-12) and Spring F3B (Fri 13-17)|
|28485||Biobusiness and Process Innovation||5||point||Autumn E1B (Thurs 13-17)|
|38103||X-Tech Entrepreneurship||10||point||Spring F3 (Tues 8-12, Fri 13-17), Autumn E3 (Tues 8-12, Fri 13-17)|
|28530||Transport Processes||10||point||Autumn E5 (Wed 8-17)|
|42500||Innovation in Engineering||5||point||January|
|42504||Innovation in Engineering||5||point||August|
|42501||Innovation in Engineering||5||point||June|
Innovation in Engineering is mandatory for all MSc students. Either Biobusiness and Process Innovation or X-Tech Entrepreneurship must be part of an MSc Chemical and Biochemical Engineering study plan. Selection of the general competence course 28361 Chemical Engineering Model Analysis as elective supports the ability to do advanced modelling for equipment and process development.
The following are core process technology oriented technological specialization courses:
|28233||Recovery and purification of biological products||5||point||Autumn E2A (Mon 13-17)|
|28345||Industrial BioReaction Engineering||5||point||Spring F4A (Tues 13-17)|
|28420||Separation Processes||7.5||point||Autumn E3A (Tues 8-12)|
|28443||Industrial Reaction Engineering||7.5||point||Spring F4B (Fri 8-12)|
|28451||Optimising Plantwide Control||7.5||point||Spring F2A (Mon 13-17)|
A study plan within the focus area Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology should include at least three and preferably four of these courses.
The requirement of 30 ECTS technological specialization courses may be satisfied through a free choice among all the program's technological specialization courses. The choice should be guided by MSc project interests. Process technology oriented supplementary technological specialization courses are:
|23521||Hygienic design in the food industry||5||point||Autumn E2B (Thurs 8-12)|
|28242||Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis||5||point||Autumn E1A (Mon 8-12)|
|28423||Phase Equilibria for non-ideal mixtures||5||point||Spring F2A (Mon 13-17)|
|28434||Membrane Technology||5||point||Spring F1A (Mon 8-12)|
|28455||Process adaptation in Fermentation Based Biomanufacturing||5||point||Autumn E2B (Thurs 8-12)|
|28852||Risk Assessment in Chemical and Biochemical Industry||5||point||Autumn E4A (Tues 13-17)|
|28872||Biorefinery||5||point||Autumn E4B (Fri 8-12)|
Electives, i.e. courses not counting as general competences or technological specializations in MSc Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, allow a study plan within Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology to be broadened in scope. This can be done either by choosing additional technological specialization courses with product, energy or environment engineering content, or by choosing courses giving a deeper insight in advanced mathematics, chemistry, physics, management, and adjoining technological areas.
A few examples of electives are listed below in connection with the study plan examples.
Two examples are shown: one for students beginning their MSc study in September, and one for students beginning their MSc study in February.
The study plans are examples only. Students are free to exchange the shown courses with other courses as long as general competence (GC) and technological specialization (TS) requirements are satisfied.
The plans are not full, but satisfy GC and TS requirements. Remaining ECTS points must be chosen by the students to have the plans add up to 120 ECTS points.
Some electives are specified as additional GC or TS courses. Further GC or TS courses may be chosen as electives.
Any DTU MSc level course may be used as elective. The following are examples relevant for Process Technology:
|02421||Stochastic Adaptive Control||5||point||Spring F3A (Tues 8-12)|
|02619||Model Predictive Control||5||point||Autumn E2B (Thurs 8-12)|
|28271||Thermal gasification and sustainability||5||point||June|
|28415||Oil and gas production||5||point||Spring F4A (Tues 13-17)|
|28515||Enhanced oil recovery and carbon dioxide storage||5||point||Autumn E2A (Mon 13-17)|
|28850||Pharmaceutical Process Development||5||point||Spring F5A (Wed 8-12)|
