This is a well-established program that has both immediate and long-term strategic value to UoS, to Sharjah, and to the country. As the first and most complete program in Environmental Health Sciences in the Emirates, it is positioned to address professional workforce development needs that will grow significantly as the Emirates economy continues to expand in all sectors. The emphasis on the science base and the challenges of defining priorities and approaches for managing environmental issues related to food, water quality, waste management, air quality, sustainable energy, occupational protection, environmental protection tied to industrial activities ranging from petrochemical to agriculture to transportation all combine to make this program a natural launching pad for graduate study and a center of excellence in the region.
By reputation and by the External Review Team’s observations, the program is of high quality and provides a background to professional practice that equals or exceeds that in major programs in Europe or the Americas.

Thinking of Environmental health and Sciences at first was a bit different than thinking of any other major before enrolling into the University. Maybe, because students have different perceptions about the image of it in general.  Choosing to study this major was the best decision I have ever made. The program includes a very huge variety of courses which never made it uninteresting to study. It was so exciting and very enjoyable. The program helped us to realize and notice the importance of details of the environment surrounding us, how it functions, and made us always think twice before doing any act. It made us more responsible towards our homes, environment and our community as a whole.  Our professors were amazing guides, teachers and leaders who had always pushed us beyond our limits so we could expand and explore more of our intuition within ourselves. Those four prosperous years of studying and fun will be unforgettable, and will always hold a great warm place in my heart.

I am a 2013 graduate in Bsc Environmental Health. My experience in this course was truly amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this program as it was very diverse and broad and got to learn many different fields covering Environment, Health, Safety and Waste Management. The professors really support the students and encourage and motivate everyone. This increased job opportunities by being able to apply in any of these fields.

I graduated with a Science Bachelor degree in Environmental Health in 2013. My degree course at University of Sharjah provided me not only with the necessary academic and legislative knowledge, but i helped me also gain vast communication and management skills, and practical experiences that enhance my career awareness enriched with the passion of what I do as a qualified Assistant HSE manager in Burj Al Arab. I work in the Health and Safety team  and large portion of my role involves food safety and hygiene inspections. I also look after the safety of my colleagues and the building by carrying out risk assessments, safety walkthroughs and conduct incidents and near miss investigations. And proudly as part of a Green Globe certified building, i have a proactive  advisory role which involves working with other departments within our property to plan practical projects and innovate ideas that are environmentally friendly and contribute positively to our culture and society. I would have not accomplished all of my achievements in such a period of time if it wasn’t for my academic attainment.
