Modelling in Urban Water Resource Management

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Modelling in Urban Water Resource Management
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011
Module code: BIBA788
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.
2SU (2 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: 7
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Project work

[updated 05.02.2020]
Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

BIBA788 (P110-0134) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 7, optional course
BIBA788 (P110-0134) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 7, optional course
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).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 60 hours (equivalent to 2 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 37.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will understand the basics of urban water management, the interaction between sewer system and wastewater treatment plant, as well as the hydraulic and material relationships between the two system components.
They will understand the theoretical principles of common models of urban water management, as well as their practical application and will be able to evaluate simulation results.
With this knowledge, they will be able to solve simple and complex problems regarding the design of urban drainage systems, central rainwater treatment and retention systems, as well as rainwater management systems. In this context, they will follow the guidelines of the relevant technical regulations.
