The tremendously important part played by the health technologist in our complex, modern way of life is dramatically underlined when something goes wrong; the public is then made uncomfortably aware of its dependence on the expert knowledge and skills of the engineer who guard its health. The trouble may be no more than a burst pipe at home – but it could be way very much more serious.
Our sanitary and health course has been designed to be of practical benefit to plumbers, sanitary inspectors, architects, indeed to anyone engaged in building industry, mining and the environment or on any constructional projects involving the safety and health of the public.
The man who has never previously studied technical subjects may confidently take this course; where necessary, it assumes no previous knowledge and begin from first principles. The instruction is lucid, easily understood and so structured that, by the time the student has completed the course, he will have a sound technical knowledge of every important aspect of sanitary engineering practice.
The program starts from first principles and it is required that persons with a mathematical background will have an added advantage to study the program. At least some exposure to high school level education is required to be able to successfully complete the program.
The usual application procedures must be observed. There are no other needs except that students should have access to a computer and they will be required to be computer literate at least capable to use a computer to be able to send and receive mail and to open attachment as well as using application software to open textbooks, prepare assignments. Where they do not have any Internet facilities, the usage of a computer is till compulsory but they can mail assignments or contact there agent to be able to study the program.
