By the end of the course, the student is expected to be able to: describe conventional and advanced biological, chemical and physical treatment of contaminated water and wastewater; and to suggest suitable treatment method(s) based on the composition of the water/ wastewater and the efficiency of the studied technology(ies).


Learning the principles of water treatment techniques such as biological methods, coagulation/flocculation, adsorption/ion exchange, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), membrane technology, and electrochemical methods. Comparison of different water treatment techniques will be considered in the course from economic, environmental and technical perspectives. Problem-based learning (PBL) using real case scenarios will be conducted as a group work. Weekly homework assignments related to the topic of each week will be proposed (to be prepared individually or in groups).
