After working for many years in scientific research directed towards a commercial process developments, I decided to update my knowledge that would help me better understand the practical considerations regarding design and scale-up. Choosing this particular course was not difficult as it was hearty recommended by my colleagues who attended it over the past years. Myself, I found the course met the expectations with a perfect balance of practical and theory. The course challenged me to creatively think about engineering problems within a waste water treatment and I felt it was very helpful and informative. I will definitely refer to the course handouts in my future work. The lecturers were incredibly experienced, knowledgeable, and happy to assist us. The course was very professionally organized thanks to which all the experience was cheerful and memorable. I would strongly recommend this course to the professionals in the field.
I applied to this course due to I wanted to get an input on how fundamental science is applied to biological treatments and also to obtain an update towards what is done today in water treatment within biotechnology. I found the course really intensive and compact in a great way, going from the basic fundamentals of environmental biotechnology to real engineering approach. Professors and lectures of high quality and good organization of the course structure itself. What I liked best of the course was the nice balance between lectures and exercises, and the enthusiasm of the teachers in relation to their topics and during discussions. The course definitively met my expectations and I went back to work inspired by updated and new knowledge. I would highly recommend this course to PhD students and/or Engineers interested on learning more about biotechnology applications within water treatment.
