The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4VU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 3
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Written exam

Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 180 hours (equivalent to 6 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 135 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

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.
