Water Resources Engineering (3105ENG)

Throughout history, human civilisation has depended on a safe and secure supply of fresh water. Unfortunately, this essential resource is relatively scarce, representing less than 3% of the earth's total water volume. Therefore, it is essential that this scarce resource is carefully managed to ensure sustainability of both the natural and built environments. The main purpose of this course is to introduce students to the engineering principles and processes adopted in the design and management of sustainable water resources. This course adds to the knowledge base of the engineering student and reflects the primary purpose of the Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering to provide a practical, professional engineering education. Pre-requisite: Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics; Hydrology or equivalent
