To gain an understanding of strategies, legal requirements and appropriate technologies for industrial pollution control.
- To teach the process design of selected treatment technologies.
- To promote the solution of open-ended, multi-disciplinary problems typically found in industrial settings.
- To explain principles of physical/chemical/biological treatment processes
- To apply such knowledge to perform engineering calculations for simple systems
- To promote in the students the ability to recognize problematic situations in which further information is needed to identify, evaluate and draw conclusions from all pertinent sources of information to find an appropriate solution to the problem.
- To encourage understanding from the students on accepted methods that deals with uncertainty (such as safety factors) and to learn about its advantages, limitations and applicability, evaluating the potential risks and managing the physical risks in complex engineering problems.
- To promote the concept of Kaitiakitanga and understand each engineer’s role as stewards of the environment.
