This course is designed as the upper level course for students electing to major in water engineering. Engineers involved in surface water participate in a broad range of activities. These activities include the assessment, design, operation and management of infrastructure associated with flooding and catchment runoff as well as water storages. To effectively engage in these activities, engineers need to understand Australian surface water issues and the various frameworks that influence and govern water management. The course also introduces students to a selection of industry-standard simulation models available to practicing engineers. Material presented in the earlier courses under the segregated headings of hydraulics and hydrology is integrated in ENV4107. The course assignments make use of typical water management problems to enhance learning outcomes.
