Learning Outcomes

Students acquire knowledge about typical techniques in wastewater treatment at local and international level. They are able to perform a technical evaluation and describe dimensioning approaches taking into consideration legal boundary conditions.
Students analyze, evaluate and optimize operation of plant technologies. They focus on energy-efficient plant designs considering the most relevant factors affecting the total costs.
Students can analyze the situation in emerging and developing countries making a comparison with that in industrialized countries. Based on that, they are able to develop water-related management strategies.


Students get acquainted with the design and operation used for wastewater treatment at international level. They analyze, evaluate and take decisions when new and more holistic oriented methods can be implemented. Following topics are covered:
- Activated sludge processes
- Trickling filters and rotating biological contactors
- Treatment ponds
- Retention soil filter / Wetlands
- UASB/EGSB/Anaerobic filter
- Decentralized versus centralized systems
- Material flow separation
- Energy-recovery from wastewater
- Waste management
