Summer Courses in Engineering

From metabolic flux analysis to biological process control: a digest with worked examples and real-life applications

 

An International Summer is now open to engineering students interested in Mathematical modelling of ecological and biological systems. Activities will be organized from Sunday 30th June PM to Tuesday 9th July PM.

The course is organized in 4 sessions of 6 hours each (July 1-2, and July 8-9, 2019), back to back with the 9th IWA Specialized Conference on Sustainable Viticulture, Winery Wastes & Agri-industrial Wastewater Management, which is an international workshop focusing on the recent advances in topics such as winery and brewery wastewater characterization, waste and wastewater management, aerobic and anaerobic treatment processes, sustainable viticulture and oenology (reducing waste), solid waste treatment and by product recovery, environmental assessment, fermentation technology, smart and sustainable farming. The conference features plenary lectures and contributed presentations by specialists in the fields. The conference also includes technical visits to a winery and a distillery.

 

The Course:

From metabolic flux analysis to biological process control: a digest with worked examples and real-life applications

  • Mathematical modelling of ecological and biological systems
  • Compartmental systems
  • Biological networks, and metabolic flux analysis
  • Linear and nonlinear parameter estimation, parameter identifiability and experiment design
  • Design of software sensors (state estimation)
  • Optimal, optimizing and predictive control
  • Matlab worked examples and real-case applications in various fields (water treatment, anaerobic digestion, food science and predictive microbiology, etc.)

An attractive all-inclusive formula including the Courses, the Conference, city trips to Antwerpen and Reims, accommodation (10 nights) and meals is provided.

Our student committee, «the Polytech International Mons’ters», includes students from Bachelor and Master levels. This student group will take part in the organization of several social and cultural activities during the week-end, and all along the week, during the evening time. These activities will be a good introduction to the university life and the city of Mons.
