Creating the Future...Challenging the Impossible
The Biosystems Technology II course is designed to introduce the major unit operations and technology used in bioprocessing, including heat exchangers, pumps, and cell/product separation systems. The content directly expands upon information and material introduced in the Agricultural and Biosystems Science and Biosystems Mechanization courses. Students will research and define a problem in bioprocessing and produce an energy solution. Emphasis is placed on the role of agriculture in our society and the importance of agriculture to the welfare of the world. Basic personal and community leadership and laboratory safety are included as a part of the instructional program. Each student is expected to design and participate in a supervised agricultural experience. Students must be prepared to work outside in various weather and climate conditions.
