Learning Objectives

This course deals with the basic topics of waste water management, which consist of water supply, sewage technology and waste management. The course seeks to impart knowledge about basic methods and dimensioning approaches of waste water management.  The route of the water, starting with its catchment, over its treatment up to the collection and draining of the produced waste water is shown and explained. 

Basic methods of mechanical-biological waste water and sludge treatment are added to this overview, as well as an introduction into waste management.
