Fundamentals of Bioprocessing for Engineers

UPCOMING PROGRAM DATES: AUGUST 19-22, 2014, MARCH 10-13, 2015.  JULY 28-31, 2015.

A broad understanding of biomanufacturing processes and specialty equipment is essential for robust facility design, start-up and maintenance. Due to the specialized nature of each unit operation however, many employees never develop this broader understanding.

WPI’s intensive, four-day Fundamentals of Bioprocessing for Engineers training provides this critical overview of the process, the function of each piece of equipment, and how that equipment is used within the process. Participants will engage in hands-on experiences that lend a deeper understanding of the interplay between the process and the mechanics of the equipment—all within a pilot-scale laboratory setting.

Benefits of this hands-on training

  • More effective problem solving/troubleshooting
  • Greater appreciation for the uniqueness of various equipment maintenance procedures
  • More efficient communication with operations staff
  • Broad understanding of equipment and material requirements (especially relevant for sales reps)
  • Increased efficiency for job functions involving biomanufacturing equipment

Employers will realize the benefits of:

  • Minimum equipment downtime
  • More consistent production results
  • A more efficient, in-synch workforce
  • Cost and time savings
