Assignments – Tests

After the lecture on a specific treatment process, the student should study the lecture note on that process and should take the assignment test for that process. A successful assignment test is required before starting the lab course on a specific treatment process.

Laboratory course

The laboratory course includes water treatment experiments with small pilot plant installations (in TU Delft WATER LAB).
The documentation for the lab experiments includes a manual, and data forms.
After each lab experiment a report should be drafted.
