This course is designed to provide scientific skills and understanding of the key chemical, physical and biological processes appropriate for a practising environmental engineer. Delegates have the opportunity to gain experience in practical analytical methods for assessing pollution of the natural environment (for example, river water quality) and engineered treatment systems (for example, wastewater treatment plants).
Delegates will acquire knowledge and understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological sciences which underpin Environmental Engineering and sustainability of the environment.
Upon completion of the course, delegates will have:
The lecture / tutorial elements of the course take place in the mornings with optional laboratory sessions in the afternoons. The laboratory sessions provide basic laboratory analytical skills for the common water and wastewater parameters (chemical, physical and microbiological) used in water and wastewater quality assessment for UK Standards.
Please note that our courses are reviewed regularly, both in response to feedback and so that information about recent research and developments can be included. Thus, content may be subject to change.
