Course content

Although much progress has been made over the last three decades, still more than one billion people lack access to a safe, reliable and affordable water supply, and more than twice that number still lack access to basic sanitation. This course provides the essential skills and knowledge required to plan and implement, with communities, water supply and sanitation projects and programmes worldwide, particularly in less developed countries. Students benefit from dedicated state-of-the-art facilities, including soil and water laboratories, a hydraulics laboratory, a soil erosion research laboratory, a groundwater training facility, water quality laboratories and a field irrigation laboratory.
