The water resources engineering program focuses on fundamental researches, such as hydrological and bioenvironmental system monitoring, water hazard mitigation, etc. Moreover, advanced researches are thriving in a variety of aspects that consist of efficient stream flow measurement, nonpoint source pollution control, watershed and water resource management, hydrological and meteorological factor’s assessment on disaster prevention and water resource planning, water quality and quantity modeling and field monitoring, evaluation of climate change effects on disaster mitigation and water resource management. The teaching objectives of the program emphasize both the theoretical elaboration and the practical operation, both of which are closely connected to hydrologic engineering employment. Additionally, the students are expected to develop problem-solving skills with aids of state-of-the-art facilities and well designed courses.
