This module aims to systematically introduce students to the fundamental principles in the field of environmental engineering. Students will be introduced to the science and engineering analysis methods used to study water and air quality, noise and waste management and their engineering control. This module will lay the groundwork for students to receive further training in more specialized areas of environmental engineering and understand the latest innovative development in the discipline.
A master the engineering methods for water treatment;
B discuss the fate of contaminants in engineering systems;
C evaluate the engineering methods for the control of air pollution, solid waste, noise and hazardous waste;
D design a small-scale engineering experiment and able to draw a conclusion from the collected data
D apply the engineering methods to solve real problem;
E demonstrate how to write a report for an environmental engineering project
The module is lecture-based, supported with tutorials and a field trip. The lectures will be delivered based on real problems, the students will have chance to practice during tutorials, and visit a waste water treatment plant during the field trip.
