About the study program



The plan and program of education of sanitary and environmental engineers had the primary goal of creating personnel that are a link between high-level education and a doctor of medicine in the field of public health.

For this cadre there was a special need in major public health institutions where there are no suitable qualified staff at present. With all this in mind, as well as the demands of professional associations, the needs of large institutes and public health institutes, this cadre is considered to be available in all public health institutions. Changes in society, as well as in the healthcare system and institutions belonging to health require new educated professionals who fully understand health processes, organizational health problems, and have the knowledge and skills to adopt technical and technological innovations that require more complete and diverse professional knowledge of health workers. There is a growing need for continuous maintenance and development of professional expertise, for increasing or improving the acquired knowledge and skills related to health work that increasingly includes education in ethics, psychology, and computer science.
