Introduction

United Nations General Assembly set in the year 2015 a set of 17 goals that needs to be achieved by the year 2030. These goals are called as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 6 focusses on Water and Sanitation and it is high on Indian Government’s agenda as evident from Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan Mission. Capacity building in this area is an important task and International Water Association (IWA), an association of water professionals around the world, predicted the requirement of professional capacity needs in Water and Sanitation. According to IWA, “the gap in 2014 was 700,000 individuals, but that gap has widened with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals” - www.iwa-network.org/iwa-learn.
 
 
The Global Sanitation Graduate School is a platform to facilitate the development and empower the dissemination of knowledge on sanitation through postgraduate (MSc) programs, online (self-study and instructor-led) courses, face-to-face (on-campus) courses and tailor-made training so that the sanitation challenges can be embraced with deeper insight, advanced knowledge, and greater confidence.
 
 
IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, Netherlands has signed an agreement with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to transfer the Delft-based Postgraduate Program in Sanitation to Universities in South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa as part of the recently established Global Sanitation Graduate School. BITS Pilani has been recognized as a sub-grantee of this agreement among a selected few across the globe and is launching this new ME Programme in Sanitation Science, Technology and Management in collaboration with IHE Delft at its Goa campus.
