Description
This course builds up on the course “Experimentation in Science and Engineering”. After being introduced to the lab environment, students will continue and go further on performing scientific research in a laboratory setting. Starting with the planning of the experiments and understanding their fundamental principles. The topics of the experiments are related to industrial processes that are translated to small-scale laboratory settings. Importantly, students will keep in mind safety, sustainability and time management. The course is designed in a way that incorporates chemistry, biotechnology and engineering experiments.
Literature
Relevant literature in the form of research papers will be provided during the course.
