During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

CHNG5006: Advanced Wastewater Engineering

This unit of study addresses inter-related issues relevant to wastewater treatment including: the diverse nature of wastewater and its characteristics; an overview of conventional wastewater treatment options; the use of commercial software in designing and evaluating a range of advanced wastewater treatment options including biological nutrient removal; the potential role of constructed wetlands in domestic and industrial wastewater treatment; wastewater management in the food processing, resources, and coal seam gas production industries; researching advanced wastewater treatment options.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. use the available literature to research wastewater treatment options
  • LO2. recognise how treatment options vary between different industrial sectors (eg food processing; mining; coal seam gas production)
  • LO3. identify the sources of Wastewater and Wastewater as a renewable resource
  • LO4. characterise (domestic and industrial) wastewater
  • LO5. adapt knowledge and skills to identify how sewage treatment options vary with the wastewater and the required effluent quality
  • LO6. demonstrate understanding of complex wastewater issues such as coal seam gas exploration and acid mine drainage
  • LO7. use commercial software for simulating sewage treatment plants.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.
