Class Técnicas de Tratamento de Água e Efluentes (Gestão e Tratamento)

  • Presentation


    The UC's domain of intervention is aimed at the knowledge of methodologies for the treatment of both water for human consumption and wastewater, reviewing and developing the knowledge acquired in Hydraulics and Water Pollution, aiming at application in concrete situations. This UC is relevant because it transmits essential knowledge to solve situations of diagnosis, design, operation and management of WTP and WWTP.
