    I like this water treatment course but I haven't mony so I couldn't learn water treatment course but I hope I learnt
  • I'm working wastewater biochemist in sewage treatment plant at dubai right now. I'm really interested to participate in wastewater bio-chemical technology.

    I want to improve my research skills and do investigation of wastewater samples for research in my company. So I pointed out to learn new technologies to apply my fundamental research to modify it.

    Thank you.
