Healthy water is vital to people, animals and plants. In our Certificate of Sustainable Water Technology, you will look at the miracle called water from an environmental, social and technical point of view. You will learn how to produce clean healthy drinking water and how to purify wastewater. You will also explore the social aspects of water technology: you will learn about water policy, different water demands in different countries and how to deal with these technologically.
And of course you will learn to deal with water treatment from an economic point of view: you will learn how to calculate technology cost and investments. This is called the Triple P-approach: looking at solutions from a social (people), environmental (planet) and an economic (prosperity) point of view and finding the most favourable combination, and to communicate this effectively.
