The use of mathematical models in teaching wastewater treatment engineering

Eberhard Friedrich Morgenroth, Erik Arvin, P. Vanrolleghem

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Mathematical modeling of wastewater treatment processes has become increasingly popular in recent years. To prepare students for their future careers, environmental engineering education should provide students with sufficient background and experiences to understand and apply mathematical models efficiently and responsibly. Approaches for introducing mathematical modeling into courses on wastewater treatment engineering are discussed depending on the learning objectives, level of the course and the time available.
