This course provides the insights and tools for biotechnological processes design in a sustainable way. Throughout this course, you will be challenged to design your own biotechnological process and evaluate its performance and sustainability. Some topics such as fossil-based fuels and raw materials contribute to climate change, the use of renewable materials and energy as an alternative is in full swing will also be given priority.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
