Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ be able to recognize and understand the biological, physical, chemical and process-technical interrelations of different kinds of wastewater treatment, based on the lectures Wastewater Treatment II and III.
_ be able to apply this knowledge to non-standardized areas that are not described in regulations and thus, where necessary, develop solutions that go beyond the generally accepted rules of technology, in interdisciplinary project groups.
_ have acquired the skills to apply scientific methods and scientific findings to solve new problems and work on practice-oriented tasks.
