Waste Management and Recycling II

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Waste Management and Recycling II
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011
Module code: BIBA680
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: 6
Mandatory course: yes
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 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to develop waste management concepts and strategies for the municipal/regional sector. Students will have gained in-depth insight into logistical processes and mechanical/biological treatment plants and be familiar with the corresponding mechanisms of action and material-flow-oriented relationships (including mass balances). Students will be familair with technical and planning issues with regard to the operation and implementation of appropriate waste management facilities in connection with their ecological (emissions) and economic effects.
