The course presents a comprehensive overview of significant Industrial Biotech achievements and most promising areas of study. The creators put great emphasis on genetic engineering opportunities. However, in the real enzyme world, true non-GMO enzymes can be perfectly applied in many cases, specifically in the food sector with very high yields and selectivity. I would love to see more specifics on how some certain enzymes were developed, how some certain genes were picked with a further tune-up of the downstream process. Overall, I enjoyed the course a lot, specifically the part about next-generation biofuels and biopharmaceutical synthesis.

There are some pesky details which are relevant only for a very specific set of learners but nevertheless are part of the tests. On the other hand, the course, in general is well developed and well presented. The focus is on introducing the immense possibilities in the field while giving some technical knowledge to understand and appreciate the advancements in this field. Great course for a beginner. My advice to a general learner would be to not get bogged down if you get low scores in the tests and focus on long term learning gains.

The course covered pretty wide range of concepts and applications. I liked the synthetic biology (week 2) topic. A wide range of topics were explored in week 5 such as enzymatic fuel cells, hydrogels, biofuels. The week 6 part looked repetitive to the previous' weeks courses. Hence it was a bit boring. If the repetitions were removed and any sums were explained in the week 5 productivity and economics of processes, it would have been very useful. Nevertheless it was a great course. Would recommend it.

Absolutely honoured to be a part of this intruiging course ,mentioning about the course it gives a limpid idea on different branches of biotechnology with emphasis on industrial applications. I would like to reccommend this course to students who already have an imperative knowledge of biotechnology since the course modules consist of topics that are complex with applications.

Generally very useful and I was able to put my high school science studies to good use. Does require basic scientific understanding to get more value from the course. Good that it was given by a wide variety of lecturers for diversity however it does make the depth and pace somewhat inconsistent and modules did not necessarily follow a logical sequence of buildup

Overall, the course was a big help in introducing biotechnology to first time learners. However some video and audio quality were not that great and were sometimes not synced on what is displayed on the screen. The instructors did a great job in explaining a very wide topic although I may personally had difficult time understanding the complex diagrams displayed.

A great course from wonderful professors. I am really thankful to them. The course is not completely for beginners. You need some preliminary knowledge of drugs designing, bioinformatics,tissue engineering to completely understand the course. The details and prospects of biofuels , biopharmaceuticals ,biomaterials are really exciting!

Very informative and captivating course. I feel like my understanding of biotechnology is now at a point where I can pick up topics of interest to learn more at my leisure. I'd love to take another course like this.
Most of the lecturers were great, except for the glycoscience Prof., who just read out long wordy slides.

Great course, thank you! Some of the info needs updating as it mentions 2017 as the latest work. Some of the resorces arent available anymore which is a shame.
Overall, I found it very informative, interesting and the lecturers were passionate about their subjects which always makes the course more exciting.

Overall it's a great course to generally peek into Industrial Biotechnology. Since my major is biochemistry, this course is not difficult for me to catch up with. It's quite a good resource for academic researchers to broaden the horizons, especially in applications and real cases of their research.

this course is benificial for those who want to revised their acadamic syllabus in fast way
this course includes some of main chapter of biotechnology engg,
This short term course is very useful for those whose are unable to go out for internship in this pandemic.

It was a really great course! But I would appreciated more if its updated to 2021 because I believe some of the references are a bit old but good of course.
Overall I think it was great! I am a chemical engineer so I really enjoyed de the biotechnology process part :)

The course is descriptive and definitely covers the main topics. It was very informative to acknowledge the utilities of the biotech field, which currently remain unknown to many. However, some concepts can be a bit tricky for high schollers or middle schoolers.

Very in-depth overview on the growing field of Industrial Biotechnology. All professors did an excellent job explaining their respective material. Examples were a bit hard to follow at times, but overall a course I'd recommend to anyone interested in the field.

This course was much helpful for me and covered all the necessary concepts of Industrial Biotechnology, which was not possible with normal classroom teaching. The assignments were well-framed and helped to get clarity over the learned concepts.

A great course for those who are to work in industries or become an entrepreneur.
The course gave the basic and in depth knowledge on Enzymes, Synthetic Biology, Biochemistry and Bioprocess Engineering, Glycoscience and Biopharmaceuticals.

It is well stablish but I think that in some lessons the thematic is way too deepen, more that what it should, and in other is just too simple. I would reorganize better the course and work with more pedagogic slides.

I really loved this course, I gained more knowledge in terms of general industrial biotechnology. However, It would be tremendously helpful to put some examples of applied techniques in production of bio medicines.

Good overview of industrial biotechnology. I especially enjoyed the modules on bioprocessing, they were general enough to teach broadly applicable concepts. The later modules were a little too specific for me.

La calidad del curso y de los profesores es muy buena. Quizás tiene un carácter más divulgativo que explicativo en cuanto a la biotecnología industrial, enfocándose, quizás demasiado, en ejemplos prácticos.

Please, note that the test to the 3rd week has lots of "X" marked at the end of some questions: the sames that are the correct showing the response before the students can even think about the questions.
