Continuing education

DTU Bioengineering are in the process of developing a whole line of continuing education courses based on the latest research in the field of all our research areas. In 2021 DTU Bioengineering will offer continuing education courses specifically developed for biotech professionals.

New courses:

Introduction to Python and data science for biotechnologists

Get absolute programming novices in biotechnology (technicians, scientists, managers) of the ground with adopting Python (instead of Excel) in their daily work.
Venue: Online
Duration: 3 days
Dates: 18-20 May 2021

Hands-on cGMP for Biomanufacturing

Touching upon both classic GMP and novel future GMP. The course provides practical exercises along with lectures with a process oriented focus on the upstream and downstream operations that comprise a typical biopharmaceutical process. The course provides fundamental concepts, process parameters, and operational considerations for the following processing steps common to most processes: fermentation and cell culture, centrifugation, chromatography, and ultrafiltration. The course will take place in the pilot plant facilities at the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering.
Venue: DTU Campus
Duration: 4 days
Dates: 17-20 August 2021

Global Regulatory Affairs for Medical Products

The course will be dealing with the regulatory affairs for medical products and has the objective to survey a general overview about the quality systems used to meet the regulatory requirements. It will include developing, testing, manufacturing, and selling medical products in the global marketplace.
Venue: Online
Duration: 11 weeks
From: September 2021

Introduction to Biomanufacturing

The course aims to kick-start careers in industrial fermentation or to support career changers from related areas (e.g. downstream processing, QC, etc.) in moving to fermentation and biobased production processes. It gives an overview of state of the art biomanufacturing technologies and provides the participants with knowledge of fermentation technology, data analysis, quantitative considerations, preparing them to participate in fermentation process development and operation.
Venue: DTU – Lectures + hands-on
Duration: 3 days
Dates: 24-26 August 2021

QA 4.0- future GMP technologies

This course will be dealing with more visionary aspects of GMP methods. This includes QbD and PAT, technologies gaining more and more ground in the pharmaceutical industries. Model supported process prediction including CFD methods for design space descriptions will be introduced as well as novel measurement techniques and the concept of digital twins for the potential use in continuous production or batch production processes. Finally, virtual processes and laboratories for process understanding, operator training and AI and machine learning will also be a topic. 
Venue: DTU – Lectures + hands-on         
Duration: 3 days (tbd)
