Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering

Overview

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.

Coastal engineering includes topics of fluid flow in coastal regions, and includes senior technical elective courses in ocean waves, pollutant transport, and ocean turbulence.
