About Course

River Engineering. In the last few decades, water demand in the globe has increased in many folds. Rivers, one of the major sources of water demand for domestic, agricultural, and industrial uses, are often not utilized properly for long-term sustainability.

Therefore, it is challenging for engineers to understand water, sediment, and energy transport processes in rivers on spatial and temporal scales.

This course will address how to understand and model hydro-fluvial processes and designing of advanced river intervention structures.
