Summary

This course on applied wastewater treatment focuses on engineering and scientific aspects to achieve high effluent water quality and to handle wastes and air emissions generated in wastewater treatment plants.

Content

Keywords

organic micropollutants removal, sludge treatment, air emission control, nutrient and energy recovery, engineering

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

  • Water and wastewater treatment (can be taken during the same semester)

Recommended courses

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Design an organic micropollutant removal process
  • Propose an adequate sludge treatment
