The Lassonde School of Engineering and the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research at York University are launching their second offering of the Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Course this September.
The Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Course offers participants an opportunity to gain essential knowledge and skills on safe water supply in humanitarian emergencies. The course covers the theoretical fundamentals of, and practical considerations for, the design and operation of water supply systems in humanitarian response. Over the course of twelve weeks in Fall 2022, participants will engage in a rich, multifaceted online learning experience consisting of lectures from experienced practitioners and engineering faculty, problem-based learning activities guided by talented facilitators, and curated readings. Members of our inaugural 2021 cohort have gone on to start or advance their careers as water and sanitation specialists in the humanitarian sector.
