Syllabus | B.Tech Civil Engineering | Wastewater Treatment Laboratory

  Wastewater Treatment Laboratory Learning Schedule
Pre-requisites: Principles & Design of  Wastewater Treatment & Disposal Systems 0 0 2 1



To carryout experiments related to waste water treatment with the help of different instruments. The course also develops skill in the students to design screen chamber, grit chamber, primary sedimentation tank & trickling filter for the waste water treatment plants.


To develop skill in students for evaluating the performance of waste-water treatment plants.


On completion of this course the students will be able to determine the BOD, COD, DO, chlorine concentration etc.
