Water engineering is a branch of engineering that is concerned with the management of the environment and natural resources, in this case water, placing particular attention to the biological, chemical and physical reactions. In this way, water engineers are able to create mechanisms in which the water supply can be sustained in the community to protect the ecosystems and improve the general environment.
How to become a Water Engineer
To become a water engineer, F.Sc.(Pre-Engineering) is required, to qualify for an undergraduate’s program in civil engineering, or any field of engineering. The field requires you to be good in Mathematics and Physics especially in High School and College.
Nature of Work
Water engineering careers are numerous and extensive. However, all together they focus on five key aspects as detailed below.
§ River Basin Development: this area deals with the enhancement of various rivers is terms water quality and sanitation in order to benefit to the society as well as dealing with water problems.
§ Coastal Engineering and Port Development: This section deals with the design and management of various water systems in coastal regions.
§ Land and Water Development: Deals with the managing of water and land resources as well as the various developments involved on land and water
§ Hydrology and Water Resources: Deals with Ensuring that the hydrological cycle is better understood.
