Hydrologic analysis provides the input parameters essential for the design of many engineering works, from the simplest road culvert to major water storage reservoirs.
A knowledge of engineering hydrology is essential for the specialist water engineer and for many engineers employed in other engineering positions, for example, local government authorities. Engineers employed by these authorities are required to determine the design capacity of these structures by estimating the runoff from the catchments draining to them. This course will familiarise students with a range of important surface and groundwater hydrological processes. The course will stress the stochastic nature of many hydrological processes and present some of the probabilistic approaches used.
Before enrolling in this course you need to:
Allow approximately 8-9 hours study time per week for each 15 credit course. Your workload may be higher around assessment due dates or exam time.
