Prerequisites Check entry and other requirements under the qualification you are studying
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.
To study this course you will need report writing skills and access to spreadsheet software such as excel.
