TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

COURSE OUTCOMES: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
• To explain the theoretical concepts of thermodynamics and how it applies to energy Conversion.
• To demonstrate the capability to analyse the energy conversion performance in a variety of modern applications in biological systems.
• To design and carry out bioprocess engineering experiments, and analyse and interpret fundamental data to do the design and operation of bioprocesses.
• To describe the criteria when two phases coexist in equilibrium and the vapour liquid equilibrium calculations.
• To understand the microbial growth and product formation and its kinetics.
• To explore the thermodynamic concepts in bio chemical engineering.
