Membranes in Downstream Processing
- To acquire general concepts about downstream processing
- To be able to apply previous knowledge, acquired in separation processes and transport phenomena, in the processing of biological media
- To be able to design process integration schemes
- To acquire knowledge about emerging process monitoring tools and their use for process control
- Understand how a specific problem may be approached by the Industry

The evaluation includes:
- Scientific research project and corresponding report and discussion – individual
- Engineering project with report and oral presentation and discussion - group of 3 students.
- Tests (2) - individual
The final grade is composed by 25% of the grade obtained in the research project +25% of the grade obtained in the engineering project +50% of the grade obtained in the tests (average value of the two tests).
In each component of the evaluation the grade has to be >=9.5, in a scale 0-20.
