Bioengineering I

FCH-BA_BIO1Ak. rok: 2022/2023

In the course Bioengineering I, students will learn how to solve the system mass balances, what type of bioreactors exist and how they can be used and applied for different cultivation methods. The subject deals with the kinetics of enzymatic reactions, phase flow characteristics, transport cell processes, microbial kinetics and cultivation methods (batch, fed-batch and continuous system). Furthermore, students will learn about bioreactor mixing, aeration and mass transfer, and sterilisation conditions of bioreactor systems.

Cíl

The course aims to provide students with basic information in the field of Bioengineering. Students should understand the connection between bioengineering and biotechnology and should be able to solve fundamental problems and calculations related to the balancing of systems, the function of bioreactors and their necessary basic technological operations associated with their use. Another critical point in this subject is to understand the growth kinetics of microorganisms. An essential part of the course is the explanation of downstream processes. Last but not least, students will understand the kinetics of enzymatic reactions.
