Learn current practices and the state of the art in hydrologic modeling:

At the completion of this course you will have developed a knowledge of standard computer modeling software programs typically used by regulatory and private agencies.   You will have learned how basic hydrologic and hydraulic principles are simulated in modeling software, and the issues behind data development, calibration, and interpretation.

CEEn Core Competencies

In terms of the department outcomes, you will be developing the following competencies in this course:
