Title of the Programme
The programme shall be master of engineering in water and sanitation engineering MEng. (WSE)
This Masters 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 MEWSE is particularly aimed at consultants, and working professionals in national and local government, non-government organizations, international development organizations 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 urbanization. You’ll develop your understanding of technical interventions in water supply, sanitation and solid waste management.
Many engineers and scientists with good first degrees who wish to further their qualifications cannot afford the cost of studying in universities abroad. Currently only one University offers MSc degrees in civil engineering and it cannot absorb the entire demand. Thus the need to design a Master’s programme tailored to meet the needs at this level. The Master of Engineering in Water and Sanitation Engineering degree will be designed to address the above demand gap and enhance Burkina Faso’s capacity in training, research, development and modernization. Do you want to make a real difference to delivering reliable water supplies, or to maintaining and enhancing river and ground water quality? This MEWSE equips treatment scientists, technologists and engineers with the skills to solve practical problems, communicate effectively and work successfully, making you highly sought after by industry and government employers.
