CVEN-4333 Engineering Hydrology

Water serves as one of our most precious and limited natural resources. It transports energy throughout the land, ocean, and atmosphere, regulating climate and shaping the surface of the earth. The objective of this course is to provide an understanding of the complexity and importance of the movement, distribution, and quality of water, while emphasizing applications to engineering practices. The course covers engineering applications of principles of hydrology, including hydrologic cycle, rainfall and runoff, groundwater, storm frequency and duration studies, stream hydrography, flood frequency, and flood routing.
