Project overview

The issue of gas emissions that occur during wastewater treatment is not adequately addressed in practice of designing and managing of wastewater treatment plants. During this project the three universities will develop the curriculum for a short-course dealing with this problem. The course's leading topic is the reduction of wastewater treatment contribution to global warming by controlling of gas emissions from wastewater treatment and sludge processing. The course will be offered to the group of approx. 90 students from Italy, Poland and Sweden over the period of three years. The course is addressed to students studying civil engineering or environmental engineering that specialize in wastewater treatment. The project will utilize the most effective teaching techniques with peer learning being the core didactical approach used during the course. This will be supplemented by lectures given by an international team of academic teachers and professionals, practical design and assessment exercises, site visits, group work, discussions, and presentations. The project is designed in form of Intensive Course under the ERASMUS Lifelong Learning Programme initiative.
