Content

Water Engineering Design introduces and explores the fundamental concepts behind water and wastewater processes, from collection through treatment to distribution and disposal. This project-based unit will build student’s knowledge in the fields of fluid flow through open and closed systems and physical, chemical and biological processes to improve water quality to ensure its safe use or disposal. Students will be expected to develop an understanding of the regulatory environment for water and wastewater engineering and familiarise themselves with the various guidelines and Standards. The Unit will apply this knowledge and understanding to the design of real water systems within a new development.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass this unit students must achieve a mark of at least 50% on the site visit report and 50% on the total of online quizzes.
