M.Eng in Citywide Sanitation

Post By Administrator

The 1.5-Year Master’s Program in Citywide Sanitation is the new field under Master of Environmental and Water resources Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mahidol University. This program will offer non-sewered sanitation services courses and research in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Under the supervision from AIT and IHE-Delft on sanitation program, MU is working together with Vishwakrama University, India and Rayal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia for teaching courses and research works. https://sanitationeducation.org and https://eecc.ait.ac.th/m-sc-program-in-regenerative-sanitation

Scholarship is available.
For more details, please contact
Dr. Nawatch Surinkul

The GSGS modules are embedded into existing curriculum and providing specific courses of Citywide Sanitation in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering program Mahidol University. The development of these courses is based on the working experiences in sanitation filed.
