o Urban and regional flood modelling and management;
o Water resources and hydrology;
o Erosion and sedimentation control;
o Rural and small urban water supply and sanitation;
o Water pollution control;
o Irrigation;
o Integrated water resources management.

Objectives of the Programme
(a) Deliver specialised engineers in Water Engineering and Structural Engineering who will strengthen the design and research capacity in the universities, industry and other institutions. This will be achieved by providing advanced theoretical and practical training for design and research in this specialised area of Civil and Structural Engineering.
(b) Enhance applied and theoretical research in Water Engineering.
