Great course. Im a chemical engineering, applying for master's in Chemical Biotechnology. This course really helped in understanding the basics of this amazing field. Thanks guys. Humans are awesome.
Very informative and very well organised course and it really helped me provide a good insight into the world of Biotechnology, the applications in the health sector and its potential in the future.

This is my 2nd online course so I will be comparing with that.
This felt more like lecturers were given to talk straight out of notes, didn't feel like natural.
1 week has only 1 tests with massive amount of info for only 12 questions. 2-3 normal test after a few modules in the middle of week would be better (this tests don't count in graded section but only to flesh out more question opportunity) (this was the structure in my earlier MOOC)

I wouldn't say this is a beginner course. It is quite challenging for beginners. I do like the educational material itself. It is very insightful. The lectures are a little dull (instructors are mostly reading off of slides which isn't too engaging). Overall, I struggled and learned a lot.

Lot of different info was presented, making it informative but less suited to my interests than expected.
Main drawback, however, was that the course material was sometimes quite advanced (i.m.h.o.) while the assessment was really, really easy.

Nice introduction to industrial biotech. The last part focused a bit too much on the therapeutically part "what do the things produced do", when I personally am interested in the production part "how products are produced at scale"

The course gives an good overview - the first weeks were not as good as the last part of the course. The presenting style (especially in the first weeks) is quite old fashion. Nevertheless I am happy that I attended this course.

Se hicieron un poco densos los módulos del medio, como que mucha fórmula química, ejemplos y no mucho más. Está bueno en sí el curso pero podría ser bastante más dinámico

It is a good course but lacks many aspects!
Such as sense of interaction....N presentative-ness of the content and does amphasises on providing more explaination....

I think the lecture slides had too much information at the same time. If only the respective line or figure can be shown one at a time, it might be better.

very informative & technical course...course material can be limited..& i did not get certificate after completing the course

Very nice materials but can be a little bit too technical to fast at some point. Overall a good course
Great opportunity to learn biotechnology ,it shifted my perspective on biology and chemical science.

Some parts are really boring and exhaustive. The narration in some videos is too fast.

Interesting content but delivery of content was not engaging and lacked lustre

As a new graduate of biochemical engineering, I learn a lot of stuff in two weeks studys, but I have to give a low rate for this course. Not because this course is low quality, this course provide very informative content for the industrial biotechnologies, but most of the contents are not consistent. I assume this course mainly causes multiple professors and speakers to teach the divergence. Every lecturer has expertise in specific areas, and all of them provided a similar introduction to biotechnology and suddenly jumped into their expertise. And I have difficulty following some of the content even though my major is in biotechnology and system biology. This course is certainly not prepared for a beginner.

Pursue the course only if it is absolutely critical to your career. The professors have a high level of knowledge doubtlessly, but so many of them just ramble about, stutter continuously, have external disturbances in their audio, use lots of industrial lingo without explaining, or just plainly reading from the presentations.
There is a lot of knowledge to be obtained from this course, but the teaching experience of all but a few professors (Week 3, Week 5) is not up to par with rest of the courses on this platform.

Курс даёт основу для понимания биотехнологии, как деятельности человека, но мне не понравилось, что мне не дают получить сертифиат о прохождении курса, из-за того, что я из России, я не могу оплатить, не могу обучаться, меня ущемляют как народ, как нацию, очень жаль, что приходится сталкиваться с таким, а в чём моя вина?! Я обычный человек, студент, желающий обучаться, быть конкурентноспособным, а для этого мне необходимо подтверждать свои заслуги, что я не могу сделать теперь.

this course presents a difficulty to be followed in a closer way. I may have a good chemical description of the chemichal process, but as long as this description is not with the draung or picture it is hard to be understood.
We need slides information to be printed along the explanation on the video. That is missing

Very good course .but after completing the course I am unable to download my certificate tried out in many ways but couldn't download my certificate .

Performance regarding the certificates has been abysmal. The university even cannot show their logos correctly on their certificate and you would see "MANCH" instead of the University of Manchester. After three months of finishing the course, the problem still persists due to the fact that the course organiser doesn't even bother themselves to correct the certificates.

I'm a chemical engineer and I felt it is not to follow the course. Details are not explained as it is specified for a certain category of students. I'm interested in the field of bioprocess engineering but this course did not satisfy my expectations.
