The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research is launching a new Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Course this Fall. The course is an opportunity to gain practical knowledge of the design, construction, and operation of water supply systems in emergencies. It will cover both the theoretical fundamentals and the practical considerations of providing safe water, from source to consumer, in humanitarian contexts. Course instructors are highly experienced humanitarian water engineering practitioners and researchers, and use curated readings, lectures, and group problem-based learning activities as teaching and learning tools. A certificate will be offered to participants upon successful completion of the intensive course. 

This course will benefit individuals looking to enter or advance as WASH practitioners in humanitarian operations. We particularly encourage applications from: Humanitarian professionals from international NGOs, local NGOs, and UN agencies who are seeking to deepen their technical knowledge of water supply in humanitarian response; professional engineers and other technical specialists seeking to gain an understanding of water engineering in the humanitarian sector; and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students seeking to deepen their technical knowledge and gain exposure to work in the humanitarian sector. The course will be delivered remotely, with a combination of asynchronous and synchronous components, over 10 weeks commencing on September 20, 2021. Course fee subsidies are available for selected applicants. For more information and to apply, please see:  https://www.yorku.ca/dighr/project/hwe/
