Chemistry Lab

The chemistry labs are used by students in a number of programs: Nursing, Instrumentation & Control Engineering, Chemical Production & Power Engineering. Laboratory exercises complement theoretical concepts and develop, good, safe laboratory practices through hands-on activities and chemical experimentation.

Research Analyzer Lab

Research Application

Carry out research projects for the Bioindustrial Process Research Centre Technology Access Centres projects. Projects range from advanced fermentation, biofuels and biochemicals production, Agriculture re-use, waste repurposing and biotechnology.
