The world is facing unprecedented humanitarian needs. Today’s humanitarian crisis tend to be greater in number, often in urban settings, longer in duration and broader in regional impact. They generate human sufferings on a greater scale, disrupt essential services, such as water supply or sanitation and put health of large population at risk. Engineers and technical specialists in water, sanitation, energy, environment, and in other related fields play a vital role to respond to these challenges and growing needs. In the humanitarian sector, they are called the public health engineers and today they are increasingly needed! Why public health engineering matters so much in humanitarian crises? And how its related activities are carrying out in such complex environment? This is what this MOOC is all about!

Even if you are not a professional medical practitioner or health worker this course gives you the fundamental in public health engineering
Great bibliography! Presentations are nice for an introduction. more advanced course would be nice. For tests, why not adding more questions? (with 8 only one can be missed)
Very good introductory module to public health engineering. Covers a good range of material and indicates very good resources for further reading if desired.
