Through this course student will learn how to adopt and utilize green technologies for water resources. Case studies in areas such as solar, wind and geothermal energy for water resources management will be discussed. In addition, desalinated sea water is virtually an inexhaustible resource whose use under water-scarcity conditions can highly alleviate the problem of water supply. In addition soil and fluvial bioenegineering methods will be taught in order for the effective management of water resources. These are methods that are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than typical engineering methods and can be applied at larger scales.

Learning Objectives

  • Comprehend how the latest green technologies can be utilized to improve water management
  • Understanding desalination techniques
  • Comprehend the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing soil and fluvial bioengineering
  • Understand the advantages of soil and fluvial bioengineering in comparisons to typical engineering techniques

Learning Goals

On completion of this module, students are expected to be able to:

  • Developed innovative water management plan that include the appropriate green technology techniques (this depends on each case study)
  • Cost-effective application of the appropriate desalination techniques
  • Implementation of soil and fluvial bioenegineering methods
