Engineering at undergraduate level covers the first, second,
third and fourth years of the Degree Course specializing
in Civil Engineering. During this period students are
exposed to a range of topics covering fluid mechanics,
hydrology, irrigation, hydropower, coastal and environmental
engineering. Students are also made aware of the environmental
impact of projects related to water resources and coastal
addition to the extensive laboratory work done in the
Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory, students also receive
training in computer applications in Hydraulic Engineering.
During the final year many undergraduates carry out research
projects in hydraulic engineering. Field visits are also
organized to enhance the student exposure to practical problems.
Subjects Conducted by the Division
postgraduate program in Hydraulic Engineering commenced
as far back as 1981, as a collaborative program with the
IHE (The Netherlands). After the completion of the period
of collaboration with IHE the Department of Civil Engineering
continued to offer a series of postgraduate courses covering
Water and Environmental Engineering. A large number of
professionals, mostly engineers, from a variety of institutions
dealing with water resources, have obtained postgraduate
qualifications through this program.
present the postgraduate course focuses on Water Resources
Engineering and Management. Lectures are conducted on
Fridays and Saturdays. The postgraduate diploma is of
one year duration. Candidates who successfully complete
the first year may proceed to the Master of Engineering
degree by completing out a research project during the second year.
The course content has been regularly revised and upgraded
to ensure quality and relevance to the country's needs.
