BioChemical Engineering

Biochemical Engineering is a lucrative branch of engineering that combines the application of engineering with chemistry and biology. It is an interdisciplinary course which focuses on study, design and construction of unit processes that involve biological organisms or molecules. By applying and integrating the modern technology into biological processes, materials, and systems, a biochemical engineer produces a wide range of end products (like vaccines, proteins, enzymes, medicines, pharmaceutical products, etc) from raw materials and develops the processes for achieving them.


This course aims to preparing engineering minds who can:

  • Design and construct chemical and pharmaceutical plants.
  • Perform research on development on novel techniques of scaling up production of biological products like proteins and vaccines.
  • Collaborate with scientists and other disciplines in the design and implementation of new products and production techniques.
  • Find solutions to problems which occur when materials and processes interact with the environment.
  • Provide engineering services to manufacturing companies.
  • Work in production; modify and optimize production processes.
  • Maintain production lines and machinery.
