M.Tech in Water Resources Engineering Program

  • The ICFAI University Tripura (IUT) offers a two year Masters' Degree Program in Water Resources Engineering. The program is designed for students who would like to become Civil Engineer specialized in Water Resources Engineering. The study of water resources engineering involves in mastering the design, development and analysis of hydraulics and hydrological science. Hydraulic Engineering consists of the application of fluid mechanics to water flowing in an isolated environment (pipe, pump) or in an open channel (river, lake, ocean). 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.
