Measuring Technologies in Waste and Water Management

Course Aim

Course participants acquire basic theoretical knowledge about the function, opportunities and limits of current measurement technologies in waste and wastewater management. Particular attention is paid to the practical implementation of what has been learned in one laboratory experiment in waste management and urban water management each. The course participants thereby learn in a practical way how experiments are scientifically planned, carried out and evaluated.
This course is an elective course offered as part of the bachelor's degree program and is recommended as preparation for bachelor and master's theses. Master's students can also register and have the subject recorded as an additionally attended module (not as a Master's elective module).
