Water Resources Engineering
Design needed solutions for the management of water and land resources. Evaluate watershed management options; design flood and erosion control systems, water supply and treatment systems and water distribution networks, including water security systems. Develop policies for the preservation of water systems, and use geographic information systems for computerized data management.
Water Resources Engineering focuses on the use and management of land and water resources in rural and urban watersheds.
A growing population and the need for clean water demands Water Resources Engineers to develop solutions that are environmentally sustainable and economically viable. Water Resources Engineering combines elements of other disciplines such as civil engineering, environmental engineering, agriculture, planning and geography in a unique combination ideally suited to address society's concerns and needs surrounding water.
Students design and develop creative solutions to protect groundwater, soil, wetlands, streams and lakes to ensure that the development of new water supplies not disrupt natural processes. Students learn to apply engineering analysis and computer models to identify water resources problems and design engineering solutions to these challenges.
Admission to semester one of a degree program and General Studies is available in the Fall semester only. A semester one degree applicant is defined as one who will receive fewer than 2.00 transfer credits upon admission.
