Bioprocess engineers create processes and products that support the development of a healthy and sustainable world.
Bioprocess engineering combines the core principles of chemical engineering and biology for scalable production of medicines, such as vaccines during pandemics, foods and beverages.
The same principles are applied to treating wastewater and converting waste streams into valuable products, such as biofuels or biodegradable plastics.
This involves engineering living cells to produce desirable products, and designing and optimising processes to manufacture bioproducts at scale to benefit society.
