Given the current state of the energy crisis and climate changes impacts, innovative approaches are needed in order to remediate, reduce and recover the energy and nutrient resources through various waste streams and to provide creative energy solutions that lead to self-sustaining wastewater treatment facilities. This course will cover fundamental theory of each unit operation process and design principles of major water and wastewater treatment processes. The topics will cover wastewater characteristics and evaluation methods, design flow and loads statistical analysis, process selection rationale, primary treatment processes, secondary treatment processes and tertiary and advanced treatment processes, and effluent and solids processing and disposal. In addition to the fundamentals of conventional wastewater processes, the course will also include the discussions on the emerging issues in water sustainability and advances in fundamental science and technology in integrating scientific principles, engineered processes, and systems analyses to address diverse challenges related to society's growing water needs and their nexus with energy and the environment. The course is designed to stimulate multi-disciplinary thinking and research among traditional areas of civil and environmental engineering, biology, chemistry, modeling, data science and others. Special projects will be designed to have students working in multi-disciplinary teams to develop sustainable solutions to meet the present and future water and resources needs of the society.
