Water, Sanitation & Health Sciences

In contrast to most ‘traditional’ degrees in environmental engineering, individuals in this program will need to have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to assess the needs of a community, design, evaluate and implement technical solutions to the deficiencies of water supply and sanitation that are appropriate for a given community and sustainable, through a process of community engagement and mobilization, and in partnership with like-minded organizations whose focus is on health promotion and education.

Individuals trained in this program will have the skills and knowledge to work effectively with community and community-based organizations and the local political structure to effectively implement water and sanitation interventions, assess the functioning and impacts of these systems, and identify and implement solutions to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of existing systems.
