Professional Certificate in
Industrial Biotechnology and Industrial Fermentation

What you will learn

  • Understand what is needed to move from a fossil to a bio-based, circular economy, and learn how to influence critical elements in the transition.
  • Apply, with insight, design thinking and its importance into bringing biotech innovations to industrial factories for commercialization.
  • Grasp the essence of a bioprocess, with fermentation at its core where microorganisms perform efficient conversions, and flanking upstream and downstream operations to make up a full value chain.
  • Form a deeper understanding of the fermentation process, review competing biological and physical processes alongside each other, and appreciate the specific requirements to successfully scale-up from the lab to the factory.
  • Identify detailed simulation and evaluation of an integrated bioprocess in terms of economy and sustainability.
