About this Unit
Providing clean water and sanitation is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Students will gain knowledge and skills in designing and proposing modifications to current wastewater and sanitation practices. Students will examine conventional processes and explore how they should be modified to address emerging issues (contaminants, climate variability) and how the potential of wastewater as a resource can be realised. Students will also identify various ways smart technologies can be adopted in addressing the challenges facing wastewater disposal/resource recovery.
