OVERVIEW

The Course is designed to provide students a solid knowledge about Unit Operations through  the analysis of process for  Wastewater Treatments. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Criteria for understanding physical, chemical and biological phenomena involved in Wastewater treatments plants will be provided. Besides, criteria for sizinz and manage each Unit Operation will be discussed.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Attendance and active participation in the proposed educational activities (lectures, group discussions during lessons, numerical exercises) and individual study will enable the student to have the ability to

understanding of the phenomena and mechanisms governing the operation of the equipment used.

to approach the problem of their sizing

provide for the logical and coherent development of the equipment for their succession within a complete plant

critically interpret the working hypotheses

TEACHING METHODS

The module includes classroom lectures. the teaching activity is integrated with numerical exercises applied to the concepts developed in class that the student must perform independently under the guidance of the teacher.

During the lectures, the students are stimulated and involved in individual or collective discussions on the various topics addressed in the teaching to foster communication skills and interact more profitably with the teacher and assess the learning status. 
Therefore, already during the course the students are involved both individually and in groups for the examination of the problems in order to verify the acquisition of the various topics addressed, through a direct comparison with colleagues and the teacher .
