About Water, Sanitation and Health Engineering, MSc(Eng) - at University of Leeds

As we've seen in recent years, safely managed water, sanitation and hygiene services couldn't be more pertinent than they are today. Without these, the spread of disease can be rife — contributing significantly to the global burden of morbidity and mortality. That's why the demand for qualified experts in this area to help contribute to solving this global challenge is ever-growing. If you're looking for a truly rewarding and diverse career that could help save peoples' lives, this course will equip you with the skills you'll need to pursue it.

Our Water, Sanitation and Health Engineering MSc degree will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of how to deliver effective modern water supply, sanitation and other public health interventions in urban and rural areas in low-income and transitional economies.

The programme has a strong focus on developing practical and policy skills, whilst addressing 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.

Because the course is run in conjunction with the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, one of the UK's preeminent public health research centres, and is informed by the work in our Water, Public Health and Environmental Engineering Group, you'll gain a unique insight into the most critical challenges and latest innovations in this sector.

This means that, once you graduate, you'll be fully equipped with the topical and relevant knowledge and skills to identify and deliver investments that will have major benefits for health and development.
