SUMMARY OF THE ENGINEERING DEGREE

  • Work Objective

The professional focus of hydraulic engineering encompasses the comprehensive management of water resources, ranging from terrestrial to maritime sources, including oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, lagoons, dams, wetlands, and more. This discipline extends to the transformation of water into a “hydraulic resource” through the artificial cycle imposed by societal usage. It encompasses the design, construction, and maintenance of hydraulic infrastructure for the collection, storage, conveyance, purification, distribution, and treatment of water, as well as its eventual discharge. This holistic approach ensures the sustainable and efficient utilization of water resources, catering to both the demands of society and the preservation of the natural environment.

  • Areas of Action

Within the realm of hydraulic infrastructure, the core domains of activity for the newly graduated hydraulic engineer encompass a broad spectrum of endeavors. These include:

  • Regulation and Acquisition Projects: Focused on the control and procurement of water resources to ensure their optimal allocation and sustainability.
  • Conveyance Systems: Entail the design and implementation of infrastructure for the efficient transport of water from source to destination.
  • Distribution Networks: Dedicated to the final delivery of water to consumption points, ensuring accessibility and reliability for end users.
  • Collection and Discharge Systems: Concerned with the gathering of used water and its proper release back into the environment, following treatment or for natural processing.

Purification, Treatment, and Reuse Initiatives: Aimed at the restoration of water quality and its preparation for recycling and safe reintroduction into the water cycle.

Specialized Hydraulic Constructions for Users: Encompasses a variety of projects tailored to meet the specific needs of different water users, including agricultural, industrial, and residential sectors.

 

  • Field of Action

The foundational elements that underpin the effectiveness of a hydraulic engineer are rooted in a comprehensive suite of competencies. These include:

  • Mastery of Preliminary Theories: A solid grasp of the theoretical underpinnings necessary for the strategic planning of hydraulic projects, along with the ability to make functional and economically viable technical selections for hydraulic systems.
  • Management of Hydraulic Projects: Expertise in overseeing the lifecycle of hydraulic constructions, from conception through to completion, ensuring they meet specified requirements.
  • Water Conveyance and Utilization: Proficiency in the design and implementation of systems for the efficient transport and use of water resources, optimizing their distribution and accessibility.
  • Water Supply, Treatment, and Sanitation: Knowledgeable in the mechanisms of water supply, along with the processes for treating and sanitizing water to meet health and safety standards within the environment.
  • Soil Physical Properties: An understanding of the physical characteristics of soils, crucial for devising effective irrigation and agricultural drainage methods and techniques that support sustainable land management.
  • Irrigation and Agricultural Drainage: Competence in applying methods and techniques for efficient water use in agriculture, ensuring optimal crop growth and soil health.
  • Methodological and Research Tools: The application of methodological tools and engagement in scientific research to address and solve professional challenges encountered in the field.
