Hydrology and erosion principles. Designing structures and selecting practices to control land runoff, erosion, sediment pollution and flooding.

  • The course name is being changed from "Land Resources Environmental Engineering" to "Fundamentals of Hydrology for Engineers" so that it more accurately reflects the course's content.

  • Two prerequisite changes are being made.  In the first, "BAE 200, CSC 112, CSC 114, CSC 116" is being changed to "BAE 200, CSC 112, CSC 114, or CSC 116" to correct a previous error.  BAE 202 or 203 is being added as a prerequisite to ensure students have the CAD background needed to master the course's content.

Student Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to:



  • identify major water quality concerns;

  • analyze precipitation records and determine probabilistic rainfall amounts;

  • calculate potential evapotranspiration and apply adjustments for specific land covers;

  • calculate infiltration rates and depths;

  • predict runoff volume and peak rate for a given watershed and design storm;

  • apply basic open channel hydraulics for design of conveyences;

  • estimate erosion rates and select appropriate practices for management;

  • design erosion control structures;

  • select and design hydraulic control structures;

  • analyze hydraulics of impoundments;

  • apply flood routing methods for design of flood control structures.
