Mission Each course in the High-Purity Water Treatment series
is designed to develop a deeper understanding
of that particular treatment component or aspect of industrial water
treatment. Scientific theory is presented using graphic representations to create a
solid foundation on which the water treatment concepts are based. Additional learning is facilitated using internet research projects
that are supported by the instructor and other students using e-mail, discussion boards,
and/or class chatroom sessions. The knowledge that will be gained from these courses
will be directly applicable to the operation, maintenance, and design of industrial
