Course Aims
The aim of this course is to ensure that the students will be introduced to the environmental effect of acid mine drainage (AMD) formation, the understanding of chemical, biological and engineering aspects of the processes such as the prevention of AMD formation, the control of AMD and the treatment of AMD, and the capability to develop treatment processes.
Course Goals
Understanding the chemical, biological and engineering aspects of the processes of AMD formation and treatment
Understanding the environmental effect of acid mine drainage (AMD)
Learning factors affecting AMD formation and precaution
Understanding geochemical characteristics of mining waste
Development of a conceptual process flowsheet for the control and treatment of AMD
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
