Department Of Water And Health


To enable better systems and management practices in Water Sector there is need for number of trained people to manage the water qualities at the operation level, followed by a technically competent manpower and ultimately at the top highly trained and scientifically policy makers. With this objectives the JSS University desired that the present efforts in this area were inadequate and there was need for strengthening this initiative with a broader approach such as offering PG and Research programmes in water and health, developing as a water quality monitoring and testing facility, besides emerging as a research center in the area of water and health. This resulted in the concept of a creation of the Department of Water and Health at JSS University.

Department was established in 2010, and 2-year Master's program -the Master of Science in Environmental Sciences was added in 2011 to expand the reach of our education globally, and Collaborating with Khon Kaen University, Thailand and one European universities will also join the consortium.
