Study Objective:

In the course students gain knowledge of the genesis, incidence, characteristics and importance of organic and inorganic constituents of water. They also get informed about the requirements for quality of natural waters, drinking water and waste water. Herewith they will achieve understanding of processes and phenomena affecting quality of waters and thus competence for evaluation and/or improvement of the quality.
