Synopsis:

In the course students will obtain basic knowledge about water and environmental management. The focuses on practical knowledge with close relation to other disciplines of civil engineering. The subject is taught in form of lectures and tutorials. The stress is laid on presentations with case studies (positive and negative) using all audio visual forms.

Lectures of this course are divided into two parts Water Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

Requirements:
