Water Resources Engineering

Water resources engineering is the quantitative study of the hydrologic cycle — the distribution and circulation of water linking the earth’s atmosphere, land and oceans. It equips the students with expertise in water resources engineering which includes water resources management, irrigation engineering, coastal engineering, flood control, drainage design, river engineering, and water supply planning and development. Graduates are expected to be able to practice in any discipline of fundamental civil engineering but with a particular engineering acumen central to Water Resources Engineering.  Positions are available in large and small consulting firms, and at all levels of government (municipal, provincial and federal). 

The recent mega projects in our country include Ganges Barrage project, Teesta river management project, Payra Deep Sea-port etc.
