Bridging the gap between bioscience and engineering

Posted on: 23/12/2017

Modular Training for the Bioprocess Industries is a comprehensive programme of accredited bioprocess engineering courses aimed at industrialists.

Bioprocessing, or the use of biological (typically cellular or enzymatic) processes to affect desired physical or chemical changes, is an important tool in industrial biotechnology.

UCL’s¬†Department of Biochemical Engineering runs a series of UCL-accredited short courses in bioprocessing, designed specifically for industrialists, that can be taken as stand-alone modules or can be combined for Certificate, Diploma or Masters qualifications.

Courses are of 3-4 days duration and can be undertaken as stand-alone modules or can be combined for Certificate, Diploma or Masters qualifications. The programme has been developed in partnership with a team of industrialists and there is an emphasis on teaching through interactive problem solving case studies in small classes for effective learning.

By attending a Modular Training for the Bioprocess Industries (MBI®) course you can benefit from:

  • Up-to-date skills and knowledge to rapidly develop validatable, efficient and robust processes
  • A thorough knowledge of process options and engineering constraints
  • A capacity to improve processes
  • Updates staff in the latest technical and regulatory developments
  • Increased flexibility, motivation, creativity and professional status for delegates
  • Increased contact network
