A water treatment plant
In the South African context, as our economy grows towards that of an industrialised nation, environmental protection and preservation has become extremely important. New efforts to reverse the effects of the addition of artificial or natural nutrients in water bodies requires innovative evaluation and interventions for radical treatment of water sources.
Enterprises University of Pretoria (Enterprises UP) presents several water management training programmes and short courses
to water engineers and environmental scientists and practitioners. The water courses are designed to provide a theoretical background in the fields of water quality management, water and wastewater treatment design, operation and optimisation, environmental technology, and mastery of the current regulatory framework. Broader open-ended problems are investigated at Master’s and Doctoral level at the University of Pretoria, in order for our graduates to provide leadership and insight into solutions for emerging environmental problems.
The courses are presented by specialists such as Prof Evans Chirwa, Professor and incumbent of the Sedibeng Water Chair in Water Utilisation Engineering and Dr Deon Brink, Senior Lecturer in the Water Utilisation and Environmental Engineering Division, University of Pretoria.
The Water Utilisation and Environmental Engineering
Division of the University of Pretoria was established in the Department of Chemical Engineering in 1969 to promote excellence in education, training and research. The aim of the division was specifically formulated to provide human capacity for industry and the public sector and raise awareness about the finite nature of the assimilative capacity of the environment.Visit the following links for more information on our water-related short courses and research and advisory services.
