WATR06002 2018 Water and Wastewater Science Module
This module deals with selected aspects of Water and Wastewater Science that are relevant to Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants. This module will introduce the importance of water, it sources, its uses, the quality of water, the sources and types of water pollution, how it is measured and how these measurements are interpreted. It forms the foundation module for all Modules in 2nd, 3rd and 4th semester modules.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Name, explain and apply the various basic concepts of Water and Wastewater .
Distinguish sources, uses and quality of Water and Wastewater.
Identify sources and types of pollution.
Interpret scientific measurements and results.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. This will include online lectures (via adobe connect or similar), workshops augmented by independent learning and directed learning and assessment. This approach is expected to address student-learning needs. A learning platform such as Moodle will be used to upload educational material (i.e. presentations and recordings of online lectures plus supplementary reading material) and as a means of assessment (e.g. quizzes, uploading assignments and journals). This blended approach (lectures and workshops) brings students together to facilitate group learning
