Environmental Engineering



Advanced water and wastewater treatment processes are increasingly sought out due to their ability to produce superior quality water compared to conventional treatment processes. Especially with the identification of emerging pollutants, swift growth of population and industrial activities, and lessening availability of water resources, conventional treatment processes are becoming more challenged. Practitioners in the field need to establish best practices in handling water and wastewater from different sources to combat the modern challenges in industry. This subject focuses on educating students on how to design an advanced water and wastewater treatment process using membrane technology based on fundamental principles to real applications and process design parameters. A practical computer-based design tool is demonstrated to aid in the design of a membrane-based treatment process. The subject brings both science (chemistry, physics and biology) and engineering together on a number of levels, such as in terms of learning from nature, and applying engineering and design solutions.
