The Humanitarian Engineering Programme is proudly celebrating World Water Day.
The theme for World Water Day 2018 is ‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face. Even today in the 21st century WHO have raised awareness today that only 1 in 4 people in low-income countries have handwashing facilities with soap & water at home. The United Nations have noted that 2 billion people drink unsafe water every day.
We know it’s not just about what we offer on the course that makes students choose to study at Warwick. It is also the fact that Warwick offers a great chance to get involved in all sorts of projects, societies and research while you complete your studies. The level of flexibility offered with the Humanitarian Engineering programme lends itself well to giving you the opportunity to get stuck in!
