metabolisms; Bio-reaction and kinetic Models; Molecular Biology and Systems
Biology; Bioreactor operations; Bio-separation; Animal/Plant cell culture;
Mixed cultures and Wastewater treatment; Biofuel topics; Proposal writing and
MATLAB based computer simulations

**Chemical Process Dynamics and
Control **

Topics: steady and unsteady-state behavior of chemical
processes; transfer function and block diagram; fundamental feedback and
feedfoward control strategies; control design and applications; process
optimization; process modeling and problem solving with Excel, MATLAB and
Simulink; process data analysis and empirical modeling (e.g., machine learning).
