This topic introduces theoretical and practical elements of hydraulics and water engineering, including the sustainable utilization, treatment and management of water for the benefit of society and the environment. Topics include pipe flow, dam design, pumps, turbines, hydropower, computational techniques, flow measurement, river channel behaviour and erosion, water and wastewater treatment, water supply infrastructure, irrigation and drainage, water pollution and water resources management.
Civil engineers should have a sound understanding of hydrology, hydraulics and fluid mechanics, water and wastewater treatment technology, water chemistry and water resources planning and management, including both conceptual processes and mathematical representation. The aim of this topic is to present an introduction to the underlying principles of water engineering, and practical problem-solving techniques applied to contemporary issues in water delivery, treatment, natural system processes and water resources infrastructure and management.
