Pumping Systems Design for Engineers

Engineering context

Although largely unseen by the public, pumping systems are critical components of the infrastructure that makes water so easily accessible to so many around the world.

This two-day course delivers a practical understanding of the basics of pumping systems design, with an emphasis on municipal water and wastewater systems.

Participants will learn how to design and specify successful pump station projects, integrate theoretical hydraulics into the designs, design correctly for viscous sludges, and understand the latest approaches in wet well designs, and the impact of pump machine construction on hydraulic performance.

This course is facilitated by an international expert in water and wastewater systems and is run exclusively by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Participants will receive an ASCE Certificate of Completion upon completing the course.
