Skill #55 Water Technology

Water is life. Without water, no one can survive. The current climate change, natural disasters, and an escalating shortage of skilled workers are good reasons to engage with the topic of water and wastewater management. Technical education and training is the key to success because professionals can identify and analyze problems, and provide solutions. Pumping, cleaning, measuring, controlling, dosing, transporting, and analyzing are one few tasks of water technicians. Water technology makes a significant contribution to sustainability and environmental protection.
