Course Description

As fossil-based fuels and raw materials contribute to climate change, the use of renewable materials and energy as an alternative is increasingly important and common. This transition is not a luxury, but rather a necessity. We can use the unique properties of microorganisms to convert organic waste streams into biomaterials, chemicals and biofuels. This course provides the insights and tools for the design of biotechnology processes in a sustainable way. Five experienced course leaders will teach you the basics of industrial biotechnology and how to apply these to the design of fermentation processes for the production of fuels, chemicals and foodstuffs.

Throughout this course, you will be challenged to design your own biotechnological process and evaluate its performance and sustainability. This undergraduate course includes guest lectures from industry as well as from the University of Campinas in Brazil, with over 40 years&nbs...

Great introductory course for everyone interested in Industrial Biotechnology. Engaging and challenging, the development of a Case Study made it easier to follow and practice with the exercises.

Excellent course, good explanation of the subjects and nice to have a pdf file of all the slides of the lecture. I liked that there was a case study throughout the entire MOOC. I would advice this study to everyone interested in biotechnology and transport phenomena.

The course place too much emphasis on unit operations and tests. Unfortunately, it was not what I expected.

Excellent course! Very good material, videos, case study and examples. Challenge exercises. It easily requires more than 8 hours/week of effort. Worth time, though. I think this is one the best courses in Edx.

This course is excellent. It is aimed at professionals who are already working in this industry or students of related disciplines that will work in this someday. The teachers are awesome, I really liked the videos, TAs respond really fast, and contents are challenging. 8 hs per week for me was not enough!! I'm taking again next edition and clearing my agenda a bit more to dedicate more hours!
