Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite or corequisite: CEE 3310 . Programming experience in Python is not a prerequisite.

M. L. Weber-Shirk.

Learn the theory and design of municipal drinking water treatment processes used for removing turbidity and pathogens with a focus on the resilient technologies used by AguaClara. Explores the technical, economic, and social constraints that determine the set of viable technologies that could be adopted to improve the availability and quality of water. Work in teams and learn to use Python to design water supply and treatment systems.


Outcome 1: Think critically and recognize and minimize group think.

Outcome 2: Learn the design iteration sequence of constraints, algorithms, and geometry.

Outcome 3: Learn the theory and application of drinking water treatment in the context of municipal-scale treatment facilities.

Outcome 4: Deliver proposed design to a client as a written report and an oral presentation.

Outcome 5: Design a process or a series of processes drinking water treatment.

Outcome 6: Create Python programs to solve engineering problems.
