This course introduces the principles of hydrology and aspects of hydraulic modelling including the fundamentals of flow in open channels and pipe networks. The classification of flow criteria and the application of the conservation laws of mass and energy are described, together with their empirical approximations and relevance to the practice of engineering hydraulics. Students are introduced to a comprehensive understanding of hydraulic theory and encouraged to develop their engineering intuition and critical thinking skills through laboratory demonstrations and the use of appropriate computer software to facilitate the design of water engineering solutions.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
