Vision and Mission
Dams and Water Resources Engineering Department was established on the 1st of November 2006. The department awards B.Sc. in the field of dams and water resources engineering after four academic years.
The updated and new department name Water Resources Engineering Department studying plan consists of theoretical subjects as well as practical subjects by using scientific laboratories and computer applications. After completion of the third year, the students take practical training in the field of water resources projects. The students at the fourth year carry out a project in the field of water resources engineering in partial fulfillment of their regular course-work. The Department accepts about 55 students per a year.
The department program combines hydraulics, fluid mechanics, hydrology, and water resources, with elements from environmental engineering, meteorology, remote sensing and systems analysis, and related disciplines such as mathematics, statistics, computer science engineering, and geology.
Water Resources Engineering program aspires to be a center of excellence in the field of Water Resources in Kurdistan and competitive in the world. The graduate program in Water Resources Engineering at Salahaddin University prepares students for careers in hydraulics, hydrology, and water resources, by providing a strong theoretical and applied foundation, and a broad-based academic background, necessary for positions in engineering design, research, and academia.
