Brunel University London

Course Introduction

The Bioprocess Engineering MSc degree is an innovative course that has been developed to equip you with advanced and up-to-date knowledge in the bioprocessing field. The focus is on providing you with a broad understanding of modern bioprocesses used in production, design and research. It covers the core biochemical engineering topics in depth and integrates all practical aspects relevant to bioprocess design and operation through the novel toolbox modules - project management; bioprocess safety; intellectual property; environmental, health and safety risks; sustainability - to produce well-rounded and sought after bioprocess engineers with a detailed insight into industrially relevant processes in biopharma and food industries and their integration. Your practical sessions will be based in the facilities of the Advanced Bioprocessing Centre where you?ll have access to four dedicated laboratories including a purpose-built, explosion-proof, pilot-scale lab. The latest industry standard engineering software packages are available for you to use in the computing facility.

The bioprocess engineering course has been developed in conjunction with accreditation guidelines of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). It is studied full-time over one year. Your Bioprocess Engineering MSc degree from Brunel will equip you with a detailed insight into industrially relevant processes in biopharma, agrichemical and food industries and their integration. You will be ideally placed for employment as a bioprocess engineer in biopharmaceutical, biotechnology and bioprocess organisations.
