Water Resources Emphasis

Graduate study in water resources engineering emphasizes research in environmental fluid dynamics, geophysical processes, hydromechanics, and computational fluid dynamics. Nearly every aspect of fluid mechanics, water resources, hydrology, water quality management, and geomorphology is studied.

The St. Anthony Falls Laboratory is a research unit of the College of Science and Engineering that serves as a research and teaching facility for students from the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering, among others. As a leading research facility, the laboratory leads the expansion into new research areas, including environmental fluid dynamics, geophysical processes, land-atmosphere exchanges, and water quality management.
