Abstract

Various aspects of an engineering synthesis course 'Introduction to Biochemical Engineering' (IBChE), are discussed. Synthesis, is demonstrated in biochemical engineering as students design products and processes based on the combining chemical engineering with microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry. It is stated that during the courses, the students were required to participate in an enzyme kinetics lab ion the characterization of enzyme activity for a thermophilic α-amylase. Course activities are mapped well to the overall program objectives by enabling students to analyze problem using ChE principles to synthesize solution to problems in a new discipline.
