Advanced Wastewater Treatment

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Advanced Wastewater Treatment
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Master, ASPO 01.04.2015
Module code: BIMA150
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: 1
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.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:

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.
