Description

Water Resources Engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field that links physical sciences, basic sciences, and social sciences together. This course builds on and supplements undergraduate hydrotechnical courses especially Hydrology (CE 319). The course focuses on three major parts of water resources engineering practice: Part I ? Watershed Analysis and Simulation; Part II ? Water Use and associated Analysis; and Part III ? Water Excess management and associate Analysis. It includes consideration of water resources systems and their management, establishment of the various data needs for water resource systems analysis, the use of economics as a decision-making tool in water resources engineering. While focused on the engineering aspects of water resource management, the student is also exposed to the broader issues which impact the management decisions of the resource (e.g., social, environmental, ethical).
