Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering

Professors in charge of Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering

Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering focuses on the design, planning, and management of watershed and water resource systems. These courses are generally considered to be at the senior and graduate level, and expose the student to the science of physical and statistical hydrology.

Water resources engineering addresses elementary surface and groundwater hydrology, pressure flow, and open channel flow fundamentals. Topics also include basic probability and statistics with a water resources emphasis, watershed and site drainage concepts, natural and constructed open channel systems, reservoir routing, and design, analysis, and management issues. An integrated, systems analysis approach to water resources engineering is stressed.
