Description
To Improve the understanding of the engineering principle of unit processes and the process design of water treatment  systems
 
Objective
The main objective of this course is to enable the participants to understand the basic engineering principles of each unit process of a conventional water treatment plant and design basis for each unit process of a chemical assisted filtration. Enhanced clarification processes are also discussed. Some other water treatment processes, such as direct and pressure filtration, slow sand filtration, membrane filtration are also covered in the course. The course principle is to improve the knowledge of the participants in water treatment unit processes such that they would be able to gain understanding in process design of water treatment.
 
Target Audience
Environmental or process design Engineers, Water utility managers and water treatment operators, Civil Engineers, Chemical Engineers and Environmental Engineers of junior and intermediate levels, particularly those with interest in pursuing water treatment areas.

After Attending This Course You Will Be Able To:

  • Understand the principles and objectives of Water Treatment
  • Improve the knowledge of Engineering principles of unit processes in water treatment.
  • Gain understanding and proper application in process design of water treatment systems and practical know-how to design water treatment unit processes.
