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.
Relevant literature in the form of research papers will be provided during the course.
