This is an introductory course, and no prior knowledge of chemical engineering is therefore required.
Science has advanced to the extent that humankind now asserts its dominion over the very building blocks of life, and engineers are at the forefront of the efforts to harness the power of biological systems to develop new technologies, materials, medical tools and treatments, foods, industrial products and environmental processes to improve the world around us.
This course presents coffee production from this perspective, detailing each process step and exploring the underlying physical and chemical phenomena involved, from the cultivation of the coffee plants, through the heat and mass transfer involved in roasting and percolation, and through the engineering considerations that go into the design of coffee machines and disposable cups, while taking economics, sustainability, and ethics into consideration.
Participants will get hands-on experience in process engineering through relevant laboratory experiments, see the process in action by visiting a local coffee roaster, and, of course, sample delicious coffees from all over the world.
This course provides an introduction to biological engineering, covering subjects that include introductions to microbiology, cell biology, and genetic engineering, bioprocessing for the production of biofuels, foods and pharmaceuticals, biomaterials, and recent advances in tissue engineering.
Courses do not receive UBC credit but credit may be granted by the student's home university (at its discretion).
Participants will have the opportunity to apply theory into practice through lab experiments, and to witness bioprocessing and sustainable design in action through a tour of a local biological waste treatment plant.
This is an introductory course, and no prior knowledge of biochemistry or biological engineering is therefore required.
We welcome each university to organize a group of students to study course packages in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia.
Many course packages have a minimum and maximum class size, so we encourage you to register your students early.
