Biofabrication & Polymer Engineering

Please note, the following course details are subject to change and are updated regularly.

Week 1 - Biofabrication

Biofabrication is an emerging field in the area of biomaterials, aiming at the generation of three-dimensional structures from materials including vital cells. Key aspects of achieving this aim is an advanced knowledge on biomaterials, identification of new scientific trends and sustainability of production processes.

This summer school focuses on current trends in biomaterials research and biofabrication. Furthermore, the course includes practical coursework highlights state-of-the-art, several processing methods of novel biopolymers such as spider silk proteins.

With completing this week of the course you are able to obtain up to 5 ECTS points.

We would also like to draw you attention to the latest Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) "Biomaterials and Biofabrication: Design, Engineering and Innovation". To get further information on the topic, just have a look at the course teaser and trailer. A UTM code to the course enrollment page on edX can be found here and you can read the University of Bayreuth's press release of the first Biofabrication MOOC.


Week 2 - Advanced Polymers in Engineering and Energy

Polymer engineering implies the development and innovation of efficient polymeric products. Key aspects of achieving this aim are advanced knowledge about polymers, identification of trends and sustainability. This course focuses on giving you an insight into polymers and the polymer industry as well as current topics concerning future trends for polymers. Furthermore, the course includes an industry tour, where you can experience modern processing techniques, and three practical sessions, in which you will fabricate your own polymeric parts.

Course details can also be found on the course flyer.
