Wastewater Treatment (Engineering, Design, and Operation)

The main objective of Environmental Engineering and Technology is to ensure that water, air and soil/land resources are sustainably used, and be treated properly along with the lighting speed of societal developments. Environmental engineers are deeply involved in water, soil and air pollution issues, control and prevention actions. One of the activities of environmental engineers and technicians is to plan, design, and construct water and wastewater treatment facilities for domestic and industrial liquid wastes.

Wastewater treatment is a process used to convert wastewater into a harmless effluent that can be reused with minimal environmental impacts. Simply put, wastewater treatment means removing/destructing impurities such as organic and inorganic chemicals and solids from water by means of different physical, chemical, and/or biological operations and processes.

The purpose of “Wastewater Treatment (Engineering, Design, and Operation)” course is to provide students with the prevalent as well as state-of-the-art theories and practices for the design, engineering and operation of wastewater treatment procedures and processes. Physical, chemical, and biological processes are presented, including sedimentation, filtration, biological processes, disinfection, and sludge/solids processing.

“Wastewater Treatment (Engineering, Design, and Operation)” covers a wide spectrum of knowledge and skills for technical and engineering students and graduates, Junior and Senior engineers and technicians working in Water and Wastewater Treatment facilities and engineering firms as well as the environmentally considerate public and government officials. The course content is as the following:

  • Wastewater Collection systems
  • Wastewater Characterization
  • Wastewater Flow
  • Chemical Concepts
  • Biological Concepts
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants
  • Sedimentation
  • Flocculation and Coagulation
