Water Management is a discipline of civil engineering. It is taught as a course at the undergraduate level and as a speciality at the postgraduate level across engineering colleges in India. Coursework introduces students to the methods and techniques applied in the study of water needs for agriculture, industry, households, recreation, navigation and hydroelectric power generation. The coursework also deals with problems related to stormwater drainage and flood damage mitigation and how to solve problems related to water quality in erosion, sedimentation, protection of ecosystems and other natural resources. B.E./B.Tech in Civil Engineering is a 4-year programme. Budding engineers are introduced to the various ways of planning, developing, distributing and managing the optimum use of water resources. They are introduced to methods for optimising the use of water and in minimising the environmental impact of water use on the natural environment. One can pursue M.E./M.Tech in Water Resources Engineering after successful completion of BE/B.Tech.



Candidates must have passed 10+2 with minimum qualifying marks in aggregate with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as core subjects. Independent entrance tests for this programme (B.E.Civil Engineering) are also held by various state, central and private universities which mostly require 50% as the prerequisite to appear for the test.

For PG

Candidates must hold a degree in Bachelor of Engineering/B.Tech along with a good score in entrance tests held for PG programme (M.E. Water Resources Engineering) conducted by various state, central and private universities.



  • Engineers having studied Water Resource Management have employment opportunities awaiting them in local municipalities and governing bodies where they get to brainstorm solutions to address future water demands for cities and coastal flood control projects.
  • There are employment opportunities for them in the manufacturing and distribution industry, water conservation industry and engineering consulting industry.

Some of the job profiles for Transportation Engineers are as follows:

Chief Rig Mechanic
