The Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Sanitary Engineering program is de-signed to prepare the students in becoming a leader in the field of Water and Wastewater Engineering. The EnSE curriculum consists of a total of 191 units (lecture and laboratory), which can be completed in four (4) years by a full-time student on a trimestral basis. The first four (4) terms focus on building the foundation of engineering mathematics and sciences. Professional courses start by 5th term, which focus on training the students with the general skills and expertise needed of an EnSE gradu-ate such us environmental and sanitary chemistry, microbiology and parasitology, plumbing, health engineering, water and wastewater engineering, and laws and ethics, to name a few.
The curriculum also gives much importance in preparing the students in their research and design culmination by equipping them with statistical knowledge, and skills and tools in data analysis. Design thinking process is also given importance in the Technopreneurship class. These are taken prior their research methods and capstone design project courses.
The curriculum requires the students to undergo relevant on-the-job training to give them sufficient opportunity to relate all the knowledge and skills that they acquired from the classroom and apply it to the real world.
