Course summary You will learn to deliver both water and wastewater services within the context of the urban water cycle, covering both technical and management aspects.
Course description Focus is on both water and wastewater services within the context of the urban water cycle, covering both technical and management aspects. The world is increasingly urbanised with 50% of the world’s population living in urban areas. By 2030 in Asia 54% will live in cities compared to 39% in 2005. This enormous growth of urban areas poses several challenges, such as delivery of essential water and sanitation services and the management of the urban water cycle. This is also recognised by the Millennium Development Goals and Targets established at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000. These challenges are further complicated due to climate change, and it is foreseen that coping with them requires a substantial increase of highly trained and qualified human resources. This specialisation is intended for professionals from urban water and wastewater authorities, urban development ministries/authorities, water and environment ministries, private companies, academia, NGOs and city and municipal authorities dealing with or interested in water and sanitation services and managing the urban water cycle.
Study subjects Chemistry; Microbiology; Watershed Hydrology; Drinking Water Treatment; Wastewater Treatment; Integrated Water Resources Management; Integrated Urban Water Management; Water Services Management; Urban Drainage and Sewerage; Water Transport and Distribution; Asset Management.
Course objectives To educate engineers capable of delivering urban water supply and wastewater services within an integrated approach to sustainable urban water cycle management.
