Course Description

Brief Course Description

The course covers advanced processes and concepts of constructed wetlands systems. It focuses on the existing scientific, technical, and economic practices of using constructed wetlands for wastewater and sewage sludge treatment. Scientific developments concerning municipal industrial and agro-industrial wastewater treatment and sewage sludge treatment will be presented.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION

To develop a basic knowledge about the concept of wetlands and industrial wastewater management and apply the same in the field application.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·        Describe ways of wastewater discharge and treatment.

·        Characterize, design and prepare individual small waster systems for wastewater discharge.

·        Characterize used technologies, operation systems, requirements on effluent.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student completing the course is expected to:

·        Define constructed wetlands’ main mechanisms.

·        Perform a rough design of constructed wetlands treating various wastewaters and sewage sludge.
