The MSc in Water, Sanitation and Health Engineering addresses sustainable development, poverty reduction and equality in less-developed regions. It will equip graduate engineers with a unique blend of civil engineering, development and public health policy skills. Graduates of the course will be ideally placed to:
- take up senior positions in public health ministries and public health departments in countries of the global south;
- work with international development agencies and international NGOs;
- enter the research arena in search of new technological and management solutions to the global public health crisis.
Once in such positions graduates will be able to participate in policy planning to identify and deliver investments in sanitation, water supply, waste management and public health promotion that will have significant benefits on health and development.
The WSHE course has several unique features:
- multi-disciplinary teaching led by the School of Civil Engineering and the Nuffield Institute of Health;
- strong technical component building on the School of Civil Engineering's track record of technical and research rigor in public health;
- potential to engage with leading public-health research through the Institute for Public Health and Environmental Engineering at the School of Civil Engineering, water@leeds, and the Nuffield Institute of Health;
- oversight from leading academics in public health and development; and
- strong linkages to international development practice - with occasional visiting lecturers from international agencies, and potential to embed dissertation research in practice with partners in the field, including WaterAid, UNICEF and WHO.
All students should consult the School Code of Practice for Assessment to view the classification requirements for their programme.
