Overview

The Water, Sanitation and Health Engineering degree from University of Leeds is particularly aimed at consultants, and working professionals in national and local government, non-government organisations, international development organisations and public health agencies. It has a strong focus on developing practical and policy skills and addresses the critical future challenges of climate change, population growth and urbanisation. You’ll develop your understanding of technical interventions in water supply, sanitation and solid waste management.

Run in conjunction with the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, one of the UK’s preeminent public health research centres, and informed by the work in our Water, Public Health and Environmental Engineering Group, this Masters will give you the knowledge and skills to identify and deliver investments that will have major benefits for health and development.
