This lecture gives the fundamentals of water supply and sewer system in urban area, and aquatic environment science and engineering for conservation water environment. In each class students are required to not only listen a lecture but also do exercise to understand the current state of water use and water environment management. In such manner, this lecture provides the basic knowledge necessary to water use and water environment management.
The target of this lecture for students is to understand key approaches in water supply, sewer system, water environmental management required for sustainable water use and aquatic environment. Students can obtain the foundation for achieving sustainable water use in the context of water resources and aquatic ecosystems.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Utilize fundamentals on aquatic chemistry for water quality management.
2) Explain the basics of environmental sanitary engineering related to water supply and sewers.
3) Explain basic aquatic ecology and management techniques of water environment.
Enjoy and appreciate works of art and broaden their artistic experience.
2) Explain the history of 20th century art including from a cultural and social context.
3) Analytically and comprehensively convey their aesthetical impressions to others.4) Grasp multiple meanings of works of art through discussions with others.
