M.Tech in Water Resources Engineering Program

The M.Tech in Water Resources Engineering Program

The program is designed for Civil Engineering students who would like to specialize in Water Resources Engineering. The study of water resources engineering involves in mastering the design, development and analysis of hydraulics and hydrological science.

Hydraulic consists of the application of fluid mechanics to water flowing in an isolated environment (pipe, pump) or in an open channel (river, lake, and ocean). Civil engineers are primarily concerned with open channel flow, which is governed by the interdependent interaction between the water and the channel.

Applications include the design of hydraulic structures, such as sewage conduits, dams and breakwaters, the management of waterways, such as erosion protection and flood protection, and environmental management, such as prediction of the mixing and transport of pollutants in surface water. Hydroelectric-power development, water supply, irrigation and navigation are some familiar applications of water resources engineering involving the utilization of water for beneficial purposes.

Moreover, 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. Applications include the management of the urban water supply, the design of urban storm-sewer systems, and flood forecasting. More recently, concern for preserving our natural environment and meeting the needs of developing countries has increased the importance of water resources engineering.

The ICFAI University Tripura has bells and whistles to offer this program for the student fraternity through which they can be enlightened in their professional life.

Scope of Employment
Civil engineers play a vital role in the optimal planning, design and operation of water resource systems. Job opportunities in hydrology and water resources are quite varied. Positions are available at all levels of government and in large and small consulting firms. In India, particularly in North Eastern States due to its abundant water resources, engineers in water resources has to play an important role in the social and economic development of the region.
