DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
This module aims to develop the student's ability to pursue independent study in an area relevant to the programme, and to acquire specialist knowledge of that area through undertaking a programme of study on a special topic or on an industrially relevant Case Study.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)
SYLLABUS PLAN - summary of the structure and academic content of the module
The student can select a topic from either a list of Case Studies, including both real water supply and waste-water system problems, or from a list of special topics on which the Centre for Water Systems is currently working. A typical case study may involve investigating design solutions to solve sewer flooding in an urban catchment, or to overcome water supply capacity problems in a distribution network. Case studies will in general draw on real projects which the Centre has recently worked. Special topics could, for example, involve development and testing of methodologies for calibration of wastewater network models, or aspects of modelling drinking water quality. Work on these special topics will be in collaboration with researchers in the Centre for Water Systems, and will be at the cutting edge of applied research.
