Get more from your bioprocess data. In this intensive, three-day course, designed specifically for scientists and engineers in the biopharma industry, you’ll explore best practices for translating biopharmaceutical manufacturing data into reliable models and better decisions. Working with academic and industry experts, you’ll acquire strategies for improving manufacturing accuracy, enhancing regulatory efficiency, and refining bioprocess operations.

THIS COURSE MAY BE TAKEN INDIVIDUALLY OR AS PART OF THE PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN MACHINE LEARNING & ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OR THE PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN Biotechnology & Life Sciences.

Course Overview

Biotherapeutics has improved the lives of millions of patients around the world. In the past few years, major advances in biomanufacturing analytics, analytical technology, and machine learning have deepened understanding of process operations and product quality in this important arena.

Organizations on the leading edge of bioprocess data analytics have already seen dramatic improvements in pharmaceutical batch optimization, manufacturing scalability, and regulatory efficiency.

To help you take advantage of these revolutionary developments—and drive breakthroughs of your own—MIT Professional Education is pleased to introduce Bioprocess Data Analytics and Machine Learning. In this intensive, three-day course, you’ll gain:

  • A greater understanding of how bioprocess data analytics can be applied to develop and improve biotherapeutic manufacturing
  • Insight into important advances in data analytics, machine learning methods, and software that provide new ways to build models, diagnose problems, and make informed decisions
  • An introduction to new sensor technologies, including spectral imaging and real-time color video, and the major classes of data analytics and machine learning methods used in bioprocess operations
  • Tools to systematically interrogate the data to ascertain specific characteristics needed to select among the best-in-class data analytics methods

With the guidance of academic and industry experts, you’ll discover transformative ways to apply data analytics—and avoid the most common pitfalls that arise when analyzing bioprocess data. By the end of the course, you’ll have an understanding of the best practices needed to translate biopharmaceutical manufacturing data into reliable models and better decisions. Simply put, you’ll be able to select the right methods, improve accuracy and effectiveness, and save time and money. 

COVID-19 Updates

We fully expect to resume on-campus Short Programs courses during the Summer of 2022. However, the possibility remains of ongoing disruption and restrictions due to COVID-19 which may require that the course be delivered via live virtual format. Please read more here.
