Prerequisites
Waste and wastewater treatment plant design.
Learning outcomes
The course deals with the design criteria of technologies for water and wastewater treatment, with the use of different evaluation approaches.
Course contents
– DRINKING WATER TREATMENT
Definition of design data (wastewater flow, water characteristics) by means statistical evaluations, surveys, analytical campaigns
Design criteria of processes for surface water treatment.
Plant layout.
Examples of a water treatment project.
Technical tour to a drinking water treatment plant.
– WASTEWATER TREATMENT
Definition of design data (wastewater flow, load of pollutants) by means statistical evaluations, surveys, analytical campaigns.
Design of processes for urban wastewater treatment (water line and sludge line).
Plant layout.
Examples of wastewater treatment plant project.
Teaching methods
The course is organized in lectures and exercises.
The lectures describe the processes of wastewater and drinking water treatment plants, deepening both the process and the design aspects.
The exercises consist in the design of the treatments analyzed during the lectures.
A technical visit to a drinking water treatment plant is also planned.
Lectures (hours/year in lecture theatre): 33
Practical class (hours/year in lecture theatre): 15
Practicals / Workshops (hours/year in lecture theatre): 2

Assessment methods
- modality: written test followed by oral test (unless otherwise specified due to the pandemic condition in place)
- evaluation parameters: ability to discursively organize knowledge; critical reasoning skills on the study carried out; quality of exposure, competence in the use of specialist vocabulary. The questions will focus on both the theory part and the exercise part with the request for numerical resolutions.
- the type of evaluation used: mark out of thirty
- number and types of tests that contribute to the final assessment: final exam (written + oral). The oral exam for the session of January / February will be carried out in an easy way (the questions will be drawn from a predefined group, chosen by the student). For the other sessions, the oral exam will focus on the entire program of the course. Access to the oral exam is allowed upon passing the written exam (with at least 18/30). There are no intermediate tests during the course.
- any materials useful for taking the test and allowed during it: calculator. Consultation of notes / texts is not allowed.
