The certificate is intended for students who hold a baccalaureate degree in science, engineering, health, or related disciplines. The courses emphasize biological and engineering principles, process concepts and the application of these to process design and improvement. Courses deliberately cross disciplinary boundaries and emphasize teamwork in a multidisciplinary environment as well as a result-oriented, document-driven approach to efficient project completion.

Required Courses:

  • BIOL.5350 -or- CHEN.5350 Principles of Cell and Microbe Cultivation
  • BIOL.5450 -or- CHEN.5450 Isolation and Purification of Biotech Products
  • BIOL.5550 -or- CHEN.5550 Biopharmaceutical Regulatory Compliance
  • Plus One Approved 3 credit Elective

The sequence of courses provides advanced training in the modeling and analysis of complex systems with some special focus on thermo-fluid processes and general control system design and analysis.The courses are mathematically intensive and many require the use of modern computer analysis tools (Matlab, Simulink, Aspen, etc.).The graduate certificate program is appropriate for students and professionals interested in gaining skills in mathematical modeling and simulation techniques, and for those individuals interested in updating their knowledge and experience with modern control methods.

This is a 12 credit certificate.

Choose Four Courses:

  • ENGY.5090 System Dynamics (3 credits)
  • CHEN.5220 Computer-Aided Chemical Process Design (3 credits)
  • CHEN.5280 Advanced Transport Phenomena (3 credits)
  • CHEN.5300 Advanced Control Strategies (3 credits)
  • CHEN.5390 Math Methods for Engineers (3 credits)
  • CHEN.5480 Engineering Process Analytics
