HHNE-Ian-Talking-close-upHydrology and hydraulics are the cornerstones of modern water engineering and many water-related projects rely on an understanding of the occurrence and distribution of water (hydrology) and the movement of water through our pipe and open channel systems (hydraulics).

On completion of this workshop, attendees will have a better understanding of the principles of water engineering theory and why particular design solutions have been proposed. Whatever your particular area of interest, specialising in water can open new career advancement opportunities.

The course will also include a day field trip on the last day and will look at hydraulic structures around floodplains and rivers.
