What is this class about?
The hydrologic cycle is the heart of water resources engineering and the driving force
behind many environmental processes. In this course, we will study the movement of
water through the atmosphere, the surface, and underground, allowing us to manage
the ancient problems of floods and droughts and the modern problem of pollution. The
course will also introduce HEC‐HMS and CUHP, two common hydrology software tools.
Who should take this class?
Graduate students in hydrology and hydraulics, environmental and sustainability
engineering, or environmental sciences. Undergraduate civil engineers interested in
hydrology, now part of the Civil Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, may take this
course as a technical elective after earning an A or B in CVEN‐3313.
