Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to name and describethe biological and chemical basics necessary for the occupation (planning, operation, evaluation) with technical plants in water quality management as well as the relevant biological and chemical processes taking place in water bodies and to carry out related simple chemical and biological calculations.

Subject of course

Chemical and physical properties of water and their impact on water technologies

Chemical basics: stoichiometric calculations; properties of gases; chemical equilibrium, neutralisation, precipitation - soluability product; redox reactions; reaction kinetics; surface active substances; catalysis; adsorption; ion-exchange;

Biological basics: morphology of bacterial cells; principles of microbial metabolism; influencing factors for bacterial growth; heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria; biological indicator systems in surface water, drinking water and wastewater quality assessment;

Teaching methods

Lectures and discussion of selected topics in group.

Mode of examination
