Hydrology, Water Resources & Environmental Fluid Mechanics is a graduate program within the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering. The program is committed to education and research on the movement, transport, and distribution of surface and subsurface water in the environment. Core course topics in the program include surface hydrology, groundwater hydrology, and environmental fluid mechanics. Students in the program pursue either M.S. or Ph.D. degrees, and perform research that can involve laboratory experimentation, numerical simulations, and field work.

The pages on this website provide information on the graduate program for both current and prospective graduate students.

Each major section is subdivided into subtopics that are navigated using the menu on the right side of the page.

An historical note: Prior to 2006, the Hydrology, Water Resources & Environmental Fluid Mechanics group was known simply as the "Water Resources Engineering" group. The name was changed to better reflect the current scope of the group's research and teaching interests.
