Courses are divided into basic contents (calculus, physics, chemistry, biology and graphic representation), professional contents (from engineering) and specific contents (related to sanitation and environment). The curriculum also includes project courses, the development of a final project, and 360 class hours of supervised internship. Students can also engage in complementary activities of research, outreach and student tutoring.

The career opportunities for the Sanitary and Environmental Engineer are guaranteed by the regulation of their professional practice and especially by the society’s increased awareness of sanitary and environmental problems. Municipal, state and federal government bodies, consulting firms and the industrial sector all have a growing need for professionals with a high technical competence and adequate training to deal with technological, managerial and planning issues in the areas of sanitation and environment.
