My favorite areas were related to my previous background energy utilization (i.e. power generation) and water treatment through achieving the settling process at the sedimentation tank. These main areas are really important especially in recent years in-terms of globalization of CO2 generation through different unfriendly environment resources like coal and oil and on the second area specialized on reducing the energy consumption in water treatment plant.
