This top-up programme pertaining to public health engineering relates particularly to sanitary engineering, in which the relationship between diseases and transmission routes are studied as well as environmental and public health legislation, waste water and solid waste management, toxicology and pollution control, land surveying and geotechnical engineering as barriers to encounter communicable disease transmission. This course will enable students with an existing background or already practicing in the field of sanitary science to learn the tools, technology and managerial skills necessary to intervene in dealing with the stressors and solve real-world problems impacting on our environment and health. The students will be exposed to advanced modules in Public Health engineering and will be trained to conduct appropriate research through a final year dissertation which will be qualifying students for the BSc (Hons) award.
January & August
