Course Description :
You will learn to deal with technical aspects of drinking water treatment and distribution in an integrated way, paying attention to the choice of technologies and tools, ranging from low-cost to advanced options.
A growing population and the need for clean water demands Water Resources Engineers to develop solutions that are environmentally sustainable and economically viable. Water Supply Engineering combines elements of other disciplines such as civil engineering, environmental engineering, agriculture, planning and geography in a unique combination ideally suited to address society’s concerns and needs surrounding water.
Students design and develop creative solutions to protect groundwater, soil, wetlands, streams and lakes to ensure that the development of new water supplies not disrupt natural processes. Students learn to apply engineering analysis and computer models to identify water resources problems and design engineering solutions to these challenges.
Learning Objective :
To provide a sound understanding of design principles in water supply systems and treatment processes. Students will be able to acquire sufficient knowledge on basic design of conventional and advanced water treatment processes.
After successfully completing the Water Supply Engineering specialization, graduates will be well equipped to understand:
- The structure of drinking water supply systems, including water transport, treatment and distribution;
- Water quality criteria and standards, and their relation to public health, environment and urban water cycle;
- Physical, chemical and biological phenomena, and their mutual relationships, occurring within water supply systems;
- Water quality concepts and their effect on treatment process selection;
- The interaction of water quality and the materials being used;
- Hydraulic concepts and their relationship to water transport in treatment plants, pipelines and distribution networks;
- The importance and methods of operation and maintenance of water supply systems;
- Options for centralized and urban systems versus decentralized and rural systems;
- Be able to define and evaluate project alternatives on basis of chosen selection criteria;
- Water supply engineering within a watershed context.
