Sanitary Engineering Program
Program Chair: Ing. Jorge Olivares Vega
The Sanitary Engineering Program at National University of Engineering provides an outstanding engineering education experience, to form sanitary engineers capable for ensuring the continuous supply of water in a clean and livable environment for satisfying human and industry needs.
The sanitary engineers from National University of Engineering demonstrate a solid technical competence in the design, operation, and management of water treatment and water supply infrastructure, pointing to the continuous improvement and wellbeing of people and society.
Sanitary Engineers can work in the fields of (a) environmental sanitation and public health services, (b) water supply and sewage systems, (c) treatment and processing of waste from different sources, and (d) interior sanitary installations for different types of buildings. In all these fields the sanitary engineer proposes and creates effective solutions and implements them with leadership and efficiency criteria.
The curriculum of the Sanitary Engineering Program is composed of 10 academic semesters covering with depth and breadth the areas of basic sciences, engineering sciences, environmental sanitation, water supply and sewage, water and waste treatment, and sanitary installations. Theory and practice are integrated throughout the curriculum, solving diverse engineering problems, and using specialized equipment and software in modern laboratories.
The Sanitary Engineering Program together with the Environmental Engineering Program, and the Industrial Safety and Hygiene Engineering Program constitute the Environmental Engineering College which forms professional engineers that work for the development of a clean and healthy environment where people and industry live and interact in a fruitful and sustainable long term relationship.
