Description

Preliminary & Primary Wastewater Treatment

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Define and interpret the scientific and engineering concepts as they relate to sewer systems and preliminary and primary wastewater treatment systems.

2.

Select and evaluate a range of laboratory experimental tests and design techniques, critically report on the findings

3.

Analyse and Design various methods of dealing with storm overflow strategies

4.

Understand and categorise sewage, storm water and industrial effluents

5.

Appraise techniques in the removal of Fats, Oils and Grease from effluent

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be delivered using blended

learning techniques. This will include online lectures (via adobe connect or similar), workshops and

site visits augmented by independent learning and directed learning. 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.

 

Module Assessment Strategies

 

  

‘This module is 40% continuous assessment and 60% final exam

 

 Practicals will be carried out on workshop days accounting for 30% - submissions will be made towards the end of the semester

2 no. MCQ's will cover the other 10%

 

  

 

Repeat Assessments

Repeat Continuous Assessment and/or Final Exam
