The course addresses methods and technologies for water resources engineering. The course also addresses problems occurring when exploiting different water sources like conflicts of interests and the struggle for water. Environmental consequences of river regulation, hydrological models, flood analysis and flood routing and use of mathematical models in planning and exploitation. Planning and analysis of water distribution networks and sewage systems, technology for storm water management and sustainability assessment. During the course the students use computer based planning and analysis tools for water distribution networks and sewage systems. The semester assignment is intended to give students the opportunity to study in depth one or more of the above mentioned topics.
Upon completion, the students should be able to use planning methods and computer models for total assessment and utilisation of water resources and technical installations. The students will receive training in technical, economic and environmental planning of water supply, and sewer systems. The students should also be able to interpret the results and estimate various methods for a sustainable management of natural and environmental resources.
1) Lectures. 2) Semester assignment. The work is to be presented in plenary. 3) Visit at the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate NVE.
The students get personal supervision for the assignment. In addition, the students can communicate with the professors by e-mail.
