Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ recognize and understand the connection between wastewater disposal, flood and environmental protection based on lectures on wastewater treatment (Bachelor).
_ understand how important integral and interdisciplinary task processing is.
_ understand complex physical and hydraulic interrelationships and methods and can thus develop economically and ecologically optimized planning concepts for the construction, operation and maintenance of sewage systems and integrated special structures.
_ be able to apply scientific methods and scientific findings to solving new problems, as well as processing practice-oriented tasks.
