Biology of Water and Health
This course encourages and trains students to think outside the box when addressing water-related problems. Our interdisciplinary approach is designed, for example,to give the health professional an introduction to the engineering components involved in the provision of safe water and sanitation. While at the same time providing the engineer an ecological framework for understanding the place of water in health, it also gives a voice to the ways in which water is involved in social interactions,

Marine Technology
Designs for the high seas In years past, there was hardly any job more hazardous than to sail the seas. These days, we take it for granted that cargo ships can safely navigate the seas – largely because of technological advances in marine technology. These same technologies make it possible to extract oil from the seabed and load it on to a tanker in high winds and heavy seas. If you are intrigued by the technologies that allow for the construction of highly complex modern ships, the exploita
