Global and ecological health engineering knows no geographical boundaries. Programs that manage chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular problems, and trauma can benefit from engineers who understand environmental triggers, patient behaviors, and global health trends. Being able to identify, control, and eliminate infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV AIDS, malaria, and emerging bacterial, and viral pathogens requires engineers who understand disease vectors, community, and public health systems. This four-quarter program trains engineers to become globally competent in either biomedical or environmental engineering and sustainability.
