Requisite(s): 48350 Environmental and Sanitation Engineering
This subject teaches fundamental chemical, physical and biological principles which can be used to analyse data and formulate design solutions to environmental problems particularly related to water quality and treatment. The subject covers fluid flow in reactors, kinetics, material balances, nutrient cycles, transformation processes, and water resources and pollution. The way this knowledge is utilised by engineers for water quality engineering is examined. This subject enables students to master key theoretical and practical environmental engineering concepts through weekly workshop sessions, and formative and summative online exercises, develop design and collaborative skills through research group project, and enhance technical and reflective communication skills through written and oral reports. Upon completion of this subject, students acquire knowledge and skills in applying engineering and design solutions to an environmental problem and communicate in professionally varied ways relevant to professional engineering practice.
