Bioprocess and energy engineering
The Energy and Bioprocess Engineering Program is a five year program aiming at graduating Engineers with solid knowledge in state of the art techniques for generating green energy. These techniques include solar cells, bioprocess and biomass, Biogas, etc. The program begins in years one and two providing a strong foundation in fundamental sciences, as do all of the programs at University of Science and Technology. In addition, the program exposes the student to multidisciplinary courses that broaden his/her background in microbiology and material science. Taken together, these courses will provide a strong theoretical background enabling the student to devise a range of innovative approaches to the problem of efficient and clean sources of energy. Most of the courses are designed to have an experimental (laboratory) component. Graduation projects are selected from practical cases that can be developed using the advanced facilities available at the research centers. Accordingly, all graduates are qualified in a way that will enable them to develop novel techniques for generating energy, and hence, open the horizon for new industries.
