Postgraduate Course: Membrane Science & Technology (PGEE11053)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||Membrane Science & Technology is a course that intends to demonstrate to students how nature works (biological membranes) and how such principles (membrane processes) can be used for medical, water & wastewater, processing and other industries by engineering appropriate materials and systems. The course hence leads from nature to material science and engineering, fundamental transport principles to applications and process design with immediate relevance to the water & wastewater treatment industry where membrane are becoming a predominant process choice worldwide.
The course material is innovative and gives the students a very good start in a leading edge career in a membrane technology area from medicine to wastewater engineering.
The variety of topics covered in the course brings together a number of approaches from biology, chemistry, mathematics, design software, water & wastewater engineering, sustainability, material science and is hence an ideal course to address numerous graduate attributes.
