Training of Sanitary Engineers in Europe.
Dean, Robert B., Ed.
Sanitary engineering (also known as public health engineering in the United States) covers all fields where engineering activities are more efficient than medical action for dealing with public health concerns. This book focuses on the training of individuals for these fields. Part I provides information on the general organization of training in sanitary engineering in 33 countries, as well as details of institutions that teach sanitary engineering as an integral part of public health and organize postgraduate specialization courses or courses in foreign languages for students from other countries. Part II lists and briefly describes a number of international organizations that are concerned with the training and qualifications of engineers and technicians, including sanitary and public health engineers. Fifteen selected programs (specifying those that cater particularly for developing nations) in countries of the European region and three representative programs of institutions in the United States are described in detail in part III. The countries are Algeria, Czechoslovakia, France, Federal Republic of Germany, Hungary, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. Part IV is a report of a World Health Organization meeting titled "Consultation on the Public Health Component of Sanitary Engineers' Training Curricula." (JN)
