The predecessor of Department of Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering was found in 1878 and lead by Professor Mihály Klimm. The Department got its current name in 1999. The education tasks of the Department over the general subjects (hydrology and hydraulics) cover the water engineering specialities. It includes hydraulic and hydrologic engineering, water damage protection, water resources management in connection with surface waters and groundwater. Advanced computer equipment play great role not only in the research, but in teaching also. Students can learn the basics of fluid dynamics modelling. Our teachers deals with English language training and PhD training also. Furthermore there are many research and industrial projects running in the Department, such as numerical modelling of surface water flow, examining groundwater dynamics and discovering the runoff processes of catchments.
Head of department: Dr. Józsa János
