Course Summary

This Certificate in Science in Bioprocess Engineering at level 7 has been developed in consultation with the Biopharmaceutical Industry in Ireland to provide the participants with the required technical knowledge, skill and experience that is required for the control and operation of the processing equipment utilised in the Biopharmaceutical industry which is a sector which is growing rapidly.

Biopharmaceutical Science involves study of the discovery, development and processing of modern, medical drugs by artificially growing some or all of the components utilising cell culture technologies. The processes involved are more biological-based as compared to the more chemical-based processes associated with small-molecule pharmaceutical products. The Medical Biotechnology and Biopharmaceutical sectors are among the fastest growing in the Life Sciences area both nationally and internationally.
