Knowledge of subjects Environmental Sciences I and II
To learn the principles and theories behind the treatment of wastewater by biological processes
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Apply fundamental concepts of microbiology in biological treatment processes of wastewater.
2. Develop the reaction rate kinetics for biological treatment.
3. Compute the dimensions of biological treatment units.
4. Quantify the Organic pollutants present in waste water.
5. Give differences between aerobic and anaerobic treatment, process , Suspended growth and attached growth processes.
6. Design onsite system including septic tanks and pack edge treatment plants.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
