Design project


With the help of a tutor, students carry out part of an industrial process design/ This work involves a literature survey, getting technical data and design of the process using acquired knowledge on coupled heat and mass transfer, unit operations and associated processes.


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):


To allow students to apply their knowledge to the design of a practical project in biochemical engineering.


The student will be able to:


-       propose an installation flowsheet

-       to write global balances on a process in order to calculate matter and energy flows

-       make an critical analysis of a process

Needed prerequisite

Bioreactor ; Unit operations

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
