This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

After taking this course, the student should have basic knowledge and skills in measuring and designing water and drainage/wastewater systems.
This includes an introduction to urban hydrology, VA hydraulics, water quality and water pollution, water sources and water intake, water demand and supply, distribution of supply water, and stormwater treatment.
Knowledge about measuring and designing water and wastewater system will be the main topic.

Learning outcome

After taking the course, the students should have good knowledge about:
  • Elements of water and wastewater engineering
  • Measuring and designing the construction for water and wastewater system
  • Planning and projecting water and wastewater system
  • The use of computer tools for water and wastewater engineering

  • Can design and plan water and wastewater system, using different methods
  • Be able to use computer programs to plan and project
  • Know the regulation, standard and technical and aesthetic-related parameters

General competence
  • Establish a good level of knowledge in water and wastewater engineering
  • The candidate has knowledge in applying procedures and regulations that must be followed in the given field
  • Be able to plan and present a project assignment in collaboration with other students, both in writing and in graphics


Water: water reserves, water quality, sources of supply, administration. Capacity analysis: Intake and distribution of water supply, materials, design, operation and maintenance. Drains design, and planning of drain and sewer systems, hydraulics of drains, design calculations, materials, design, operation and maintenance.

Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam and exercises1/14 hoursA - FAll written.
Final grade is a combination of written exam and the two compulsory assignments. Assignments will be graded A-F. Written exam counts for 50 % and the compulsory assignment counts for 50 %.
The compulsory assignment splits into two parts: a group work for the dimensioning counts 20% and a group work for the technical plans counts 30%.

The final mark will be calculated by the lecturer.
