Water Technology

Math, Biology, Chemistry and Physics play the major roles in any water technological process. Each of the parts of the course are applied to water technology.

Mathematics:
integrals, including substitution and partial integration; derivatives; differential equations (derivation and solution, esp. using separation of variables); functions (polynomials, logarithms, &c; inverse functions); optimisation; applications of all these.

Biology:
Lab skills
Theory:
cell structure, metabolism, cell cycle and communication, molecular basis of inheritance, biotechnological techniques, ecology (interaction of cycles)
Practical:
experiments

Physics:
Theory:
fundamental physics as applicable to water technology
Practical:
experiments i.e. electro hydro dynamic atomization
Related to water technology
Chemistry:
Theory: water treatment, disinfection, oxidation, coagulation and flocculation, sedimentation, granular filtration, adsorption
Practical: literature/ practical research

 

Leerdoelen

In a water technology setting the student will have learned:
- To apply mathematical solutions to problems in context
- (micro)biological principles of water treatment
- Physics as a tool to study transport phenomena in fluids with a focus on understanding the principles and their use in the practice of water technology
- To perform (physical) technical calculations linked to water technology
- To analyse water technological problems
- Record results and report in English
- Academic literacy skills
- Fulfil assignments in the application and promotion of sustainable water technology
