Specific competencies of licensed study programs in the second cycle study arise from the teaching modules of the study core of scientific fields in which these programs are native, and from specialist teaching modules within scientific fields and narrower scientific fields that are studied. A significant part of specific competencies arises from the content of the elective program, research program and papers (mandatory: specialist-graduate access paper and master's thesis), which the student is obliged to develop and defend during this study.
Study program "Sanitary Engineering" - specific competencies
The WHO Global Strategy for Health and Environment (WHO, Geneva, 1993 ) emphasizes the health consequences of the interaction of harmful physical, chemical and biological factors, as well as negative social factors on the health of the population. This strategy emphasizes the lack of appropriate staff and emphasizes the need to strengthen national capacities in the development of staff capable of harmonizing the relationship between the natural environment, sustainable development and public health.
Students of the second cycle of sanitary engineering are provided with additional knowledge in specialist scientific fields that significantly affect public health such as: improving the quality of drinking water, waste management and soil protection from pollution, health security of food and food, air pollution prevention including reduction of pollutant emissions, prevention in the workplace and improvement of living and living conditions in settlements and local communities. The interaction of the environment and public health is a complex problem that requires adequately trained experts at the specialist and / or master level.
Through specialist modules, students can also take interdisciplinary knowledge related to environmental management and sustainable development, integrating the fields of development economics and economic modeling with the narrower scientific fields of natural, bio-technical, social, cultural and information specialist disciplines in order to define an environment that is " friendly "and humanely profiled in relation to the needs of local and regional communities, but also perspectively in relation to the future needs of the descendants of those communities.
Sanitary engineers in the second cycle study gain additional competencies in the field of sanitary supervision of drinking water supply and disposal of waste materials, trade in food and food, storage and sale of food; control of poison traffic; supervision of technological processes of the food industry, control and supervision of air quality, control of production and trade of objects of general use, supervision of disinfection, disinsection and deratization procedures. In the second cycle study, sanitary engineers gain additional specific competencies related to various complex environmental factor analysis procedures.
Additional competencies related to the interdisciplinary approach and improved communication and management skills of students, enable further professional development in the jobs of sanitary inspectorate and state border sanitary inspectorate, expert on public health, environmental assessment of production and risk factors in handling, storage and transportation of poisons. hazardous substances. Students are also trained for complex jobs in the laboratories of food producers or. toxic substances, as well as in laboratories of public sanitary services.
With a modular teaching approach, specialist and interdisciplinary knowledge gained in the study of the second cycle, as well as deepening the fundamental knowledge in the field of bio-technologies, students are trained for "Environmental Management" or. management of sustainable natural resources focused on management of renewable and alternative energy sources, management and protection of water, air and soil, integrated management of natural, economic and socio-cultural elements of local and regional communities and their natural environment in their interaction and synthesis, quality of life management, management of self-sustainable technologies (such as organic agriculture and prevention of genetic pollution), and management of self-sustainable public services.
The second cycle master studies focus on subjects that deepen knowledge with possible orientations, either in the vertical direction, where students enter the depth of the subject area of first cycle studies, or in the horizontal direction, which means that students add new subject areas of sanitary engineering and public health. their study of the second cycle, or go to diversification or. interdisciplinary study, which means the inclusion of subjects and areas that are not directly related to sanitary engineering such as. management in the sanitary field, balneology, application of modern technologies in the field of health care and in laboratory practice, medical-laboratory engineering, etc. The master's program contains a key component of the thesis that typically includes one or more areas in the home areas of sanitary engineering.
Specific competencies of the study program of the second cycle of studies Sanitary Engineering are based on the upgrade of core, already professional knowledge, study program of the first cycle of studies Sanitary Engineering
Study program: Sanitary Engineering (knowledge objectives; skills objectives; study descriptors; competence objectives; competencies)
