Unit Code: CEB803
Unit Name: Water Resources Systems
Description: In the present world, especially in the upcoming cities, Engineers are facing complex situation in terms of the distribution of water resources optimally and effectively to the point. Engineers are required to undergo certain optimisation principles and analysis towards solving such complex problems. This course will enable you to understand the application of systems concept to water resources planning and management. You will be exposed to the optimization technique for modelling water resources systems and advanced optimization techniques to cover the socio-technical aspects. After the course, you will be able to understand the system behaviors and know how to apply the various simulation and optimization techniques to resolves the various socio-technical aspects of water resources systems.
Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, you should be able to: 1. Apply the concepts of civil engineering knowledge, Hydraulics principles and mathematics in the water resources systems analysis to provide optimal solutions. (WA 1- Engineering knowledge) 2. Analyze water resources problems and develop optimal design solutions to the operation of reservoirs utilizing the linear programming concepts (WA2- Problem analysis and WA3- Design/development of solutions) 3. Analyze water resources problems and develop optimal design solutions to the operation of reservoirs utilizing the dynamic programming concepts (WA2- Problem analysis and WA3- Design/development of solutions) 4. Develop reservoir simulation models and analyze the outputs. (WA3 – Design and development of solutions, WA5-Modern tool usage) 5. Develop effective team membership and team leadership (WA9 – Individual and teamwork) 6. Develop skills relevant to engineering professional document writing and presentation. ( WA10 – Communication)
