Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

Principles and application of microbiology and biotechnology with emphasis on biological processes in environmental engineering applications. Theoretical and engineering aspects of biological phenomena and processes applicable to the removal of impurities from water, wastewater, and industrial wastes and to their transformation in the environment. Microbiology fundamentals, bioenergetics analysis, stoichiometry, biokinetics, and design of biological treatment processes for pollutants removal, bioremediation and resources recovery. Topics include cell metabolism, cell nutrition and growth, energy transfer and utilization, aerobic and anaerobic microbial metabolism, biological wastewater process theory and modeling, biological nutrients removal, bioremediation and resources recovery.

When Offered Fall.
