Water Resources Engineering

Conserving the essential element of human existence

About Engineering

Water, an essential element for human existence, often requires engineered solutions to ensure its availability. Throughout history, the engineering of water has played a crucial role in sustaining civilizations, particularly those reliant on water resources. Water structures have served communities for thousands of years, witnessed in ancient civilizations such as Babylonia, Egypt, India, Persia, and the Far East. In the 21st century, water has gained prominence as a global resource, often referred to as “the next oil.”

In the Water Resources Engineering department, we offer two levels of academic studies.
