PREREQUISITES:

Mathematics, Water Chemistry, Fluid Mechanics, Remote Sensing & GIS, Environmental Geology.

 

LERANING OUTCOMES AND COMPETENCES:

 

Α) Knowledge-based

The student shall learn the principles and applications of engineering hydrology. These will provide the students with all the tools for analysis of water resources systems and facilities like dams, canals, bridges, sewer systems and irrigation systems.

Some features are presented explicitly below:

 

Β) Skils/Competences acquired

 

  •  
  • Ability to estimate rainfall losses due to evapotranspiration and percolation
  • Ability to design unit hydrographs
  • Ability of estimation of the surface runoff water volume, 
  • Ability to assemble sets of data needed to carry out an hydraulic model of a river
  • Ability to assess measures for flood prventions

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS:

Course evaluation is based on: a the final written exam.
