Virtual tours: The Pilot Plant
The Pilot Plant is an intermediate scale, industrial manufacturing facility that is used use to bring products to commercialisation. It is located in the basement of the Bernard Katz building and we’re one of the few university departments in Europe to have one. Pilot scale bioreactors, homogenisers and centrifuges give our students the hands on training and experience required to broaden their understanding. It allows them to consider the industrial perspective on commercialisation and adds value to their experience.
All undergraduate and masters students are required to supplement their lectures with laboratory practicals. Laboratories such as the one below are used to teach students key engineering fundamentals such as oxygen transfer and fluid dynamics, as well as biochemical assays and protocols. Doctoral students are trained as demonstrators for lab practicals, which provides valuable teaching experience.
The research conducted by the department is used as the basis of teaching materials. Research into protein engineering, biofuels, vaccines and regenerative medicine feed directly into all levels of degree based learning. Our discoveries today will help shape tomorrow's products. Final year students will have the opportunity to work on a research project of their choosing giving them additional research experience.
