This course will enable students to have a clear understanding of the basic concepts of innovation that every entrepreneur needs to grasp to establish a successful technology based startup. Knowledge to shape commercial firms, and the need for innovation in already established firms so that they continue to build and commercialize valuable innovations will be the focus of this course.

Rationale:

Application of biological system requires understanding of engineering and physical sciences for performance measurement, improvement existing and designing new systems.This course focuses on key concepts of bio-chemical engineering principles, apparatus and their applications in wider living systems such land, environment, agriculture, bio-production processes and food chain.

Description:
  • Unit-operation analysis of biological systems
  • Fundamentals of biomass production
  • Tissue culture systems
  • Enzyme applications in food conversion
  • Microbes for soil and water improvement
  • Biological process instrumentation and
  • Examples from modern developments such as bio-medical devices

The application of proper methods, suitable for analysis of different matrixes with the required method of detection, is crucial for food quality and safety control during production and marketing. While traditional methods are still used, most analysis now involves the use of increasingly sophisticated instruments.

Bio-materials possess complex heterogeneous composition and unique physico-chemical structure which requires careful application of engineering principles. Designing of handling and processing equipment entails hands-on knowledge of chemical and physical properties of biomaterials which lead to higher efficiency in production, handling, storage and conversion of biomaterials.

Rationale: The prupose of this course is to familiarize the students with the old and new techniques in the field of bentch fitting and fabrication processes and also in the field of manufacturing and production
