EB 4561 - Process Engineering Lab

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This lab course covers experimentation of the process engineering courses covered in the BioMolecular Engineering program in prior and current quarters. Labs on Fermentation, Unit Operations, Process control and Process Simulation comprise the experiments of this course. Students will learn details about each piece of equipment and know how to operate them to achieve the desired output product. Students will also learn how to deisgn these equiment and scale them up for larger production quantities.Additionally, process simulation with SuperPro Designer (software) will allow students to integrate and analyze the unit operations into a complete manufacturing facility. (prereq: EB 3570 , EB 3561 , EB 3530 ) (coreq: EB 4511 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Explain the working of each unit operation studied in the lab
  • Use the equipment for each of the unit operations from the lab to achieve the desired output
  • Use design equations to design the unit operations equipment
  • Scale-up the lab equipment for the required output/thoroughput 
  • Synthesize and analyze the sequence of unit operations needed to achieve the necessary final product specifications
