Courses Offered

In the curriculum for the undergraduate programmes, besides the professional courses in the discipline of water resources, structure, transportation, environment and geotechnical engineering, there is a strong emphasis on acquiring a thorough knowledge in the basic sciences of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Due importance is also given for the study of several subjects in Humanities and Social Sciences which, it is expected will help the student to interact more positively with the society in which he lives. Thus the course contents of the undergraduate programmes provide a harmonious blend of basic sciences and their applications as well as their social relevance.


The first two terms of bachelor’s degree programmes consist of courses in basic sciences, mathematics, humanities and social sciences, basic engineering and architecture subjects. The third and subsequent terms build directly on the knowledge of the basic subjects gained in the first two terms and go on to develop competence in specific disciplines. After completion of the degree, students are expected to develop their expertise in various fields of hydraulics and hydrology, namely River Engineering, Coastal Engineering, Groundwater and Irrigation Engineering, Hydraulic Structures, Climatology, Basin Management etc.
