UVA in Guatemala: Engineering, Public Health, and Development: Info Session

Real-world problems are inherently interdisciplinary. Public health and development are deeply intertwined with engineering, and engineering always takes place in a complex sociocultural context. The course focuses on different aspects of Public Health, ranging from infrastructure, health care, potable water, sanitation, the environment, and education, etc. and examines how contextual factors like economy, politics, culture and history (pre-Hispanic Maya, Colonial, and Post-Colonial), and globalization influence those Public Health aspects.
