Course Description:
This course is intended to equip chemical and environmental engineers with knowledge and skills to be able to understand how best to sustainably manage the water cycle. This includes understanding the role of various unit operations and having an appreciation of the design approach for these. In particular there is an emphasis on designing and operating biological systems for wastewater treatment. New and emerging technologies such as membranes and ozonation are also covered in the course. Ensuring engineers are able to take an integrated approach to design of water infrastructure for managing our urban water cycle is a key objective of the course. This includes focus on advanced recycling of effluent and technologies employed in achieving regulatory standards. The course will involve students developing a biological model to enable simulation of biological wastewater treatment processes. Inspection of a number of water and wastewater treatment plants will occur.
