Looking at the global issues faced by Mother Earth today, have you ever thought of doing something that matters? Do you have the urge to join the science community in developing solutions to combat the global crisis?
Interested in both the biotechnology and engineering fields? Wondering how waste products could be valorised into valuable bioproducts? How will we convert waste to wealth?
Bioprocess engineering offers both the knowledge in biotechnology and engineering disciplines, dealing with the development of novel technologies for the production of high-value bioproducts. Bioproducts are bio-based materials such as industrial enzymes, biofuel and bioactive compounds derived from biological resources, which could serve as sustainable alternatives to unrenewable products.
