In the current semester, various laboratory exercises for BTNR students (4th and 6th semester). In addition, students are supervised during the practical phase and for their final theses.
The individual laboratory topics are:
Process engineering internship - the basics of process engineering are taught during this internship. For this purpose, the students have the opportunity to carry out comprehensive experiments on the topics of conveying liquids, heat transfer, pervaporation, crystallisation, evaporation, sieve analysis, rectification and extraction (solid-liquid and liquid-liquid) on experimental plants in the laboratory themselves and to analyse their products. Particular attention is paid to carrying out experiments in a practical manner and to addressing everyday problems.
Internship in Technical Microbiology – The focus of this internship unit is the behaviour of microorganisms and enzymes. For this purpose, the students are familiarised with the techniques of a fermenter in order to open up corresponding areas of application in the internship. Furthermore, experiments with free and immobilised lactase for the production of lactose-free milk take place. Another topic is waste water analysis. To illustrate the processes within a sewage treatment plant, the students determine the BOD values of various municipal waste water.
