Biomolecular modeling in a process dynamics and control course

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The Department of Chemical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) designed a new course, "Modeling, Dynamics, and control of chemical and biological Processes" for Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChemBE) program. The course is semester long, (13 weeks) with two 1.5-hour lectures and one hour-long discussion per week. The course included its specific objectives as to create dynamic models for chemical and biological processes, including single-variable and multi-variable, linear and non-linear systems, integrate dynamic models to determine system behavior over time, design control schemes to control system behavior. Other objectives of the course also included as operate an industrial control system on a lab-scale process, and collaborate in small working teams on research, analysis, and design. In this new ChemBE curriculum, students are required to examine the structures of biomolecular control components also, with the learning about sensors, transducers, and actuators.
