- To enable students to learn broad areas of hydrological engineering and principles of water management particularly in irrigated agriculture.
COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES (CLO)
CLO: 1. to attempt and perform the experiments related to Hydrology and water resources management.
CLO: 2. to demonstrate the experimental procedures to measure different hydrological quantities (precipitation, stream flows etc.).
CLO: 3. to analyze results of hydrological quantities using experimental data.
CLO: 4. to clarify and argue on experimental knowledge used to measure hydrological components.
