New S2010 Course: Sustainable Water Resources Infrastructure in Developing Countries

Hut on stiltsTwenty-six students in civil engineering and closely aligned sciences are enrolled in CEIE’s first offering of CEIE690, Sustainable Water Resources Infrastructure in Developing Countries, taught by visiting assistant professor, Dr. Barry Liner. The course deals with the principles of infrastructure engineering and planning in developing countries, with a particular focus on sustainable technologies for rural and small-scale water and wastewater. It also incorporates technical, socio-cultural, public health, and economic factors into the planning and design of water and sanitation systems. Upon completion, students will be able to design simple, yet reliable, water supply and sanitation systems for developing countries designed to be compatible with local customs and available human and material resources.
