PESC 607. Advanced Topics in Pharmaceutical Engineering II. 3 Hours.

Semester course; 3 lecture hours. 3 credits. Enrollment is restricted to students in the Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Engineering program or with permission of the instructor. This is an advanced course in pharmaceutical engineering covering relevant multidisciplinary topics that straddle the boundaries between pharmaceutics and engineering. Topics include process analytical technology (PAT, situ analytical tools) with a focus on data processing, including data analysis, data visualization and big data; particle formation and size control, with a focus on fundamentals of crystallization, size control operations and control of particle morphology; modeling, with a focus on fundamentals of chemical kinetics, crystallization and formulation processing; separations, with a focus on theory, including analytical, membrane separation and large-scale biosynthesis; advanced formulations, with a focus on engineering materials for the pharmaceutical industry, processing dosage forms for sustained release and transport properties across physiological barriers.
