About course

Biochemical engineering is a branch of chemical engineering or biological engineering.  It mainly deals with the design and construction of unit processes that involve biological organisms or molecules. The discipline is similar in nature with chemical engineering or biological engineering. The course mainly focuses on the interaction between chemical engineering, bio chemistry and microbiology. Its applications are found in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and water treatment industries. This objective of this branch is to train the students in biochemical engineering, biotechnology, microbial and enzyme system and developing understanding of the biological or biochemical phenomena underlying in these systems. It also deals with the engineering analysis and optimal design of various biological systems and processes. The students are also taught the kinetics of growth, death and metabolism, fermentation, agitation, mass transfer and enzyme technology constitute the other parts of the course.
