How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

This paper is taught using a combination of lectures, tutorials and practical exercises. This paper includes four main parts.

The first part focuses on Pipe Hydraulics. This section starts with flow principles in single pipelines and expands to the analysis and design of complex water distribution systems.

The second part concentrates on Open Channel Hydraulics. After studying the principles of flow in open channels, this section follows by designing hydraulic structures such as culverts.

The third part of the paper concentrates on Hydrology Engineering and provides the required information for hydrological processes, including rainfall, infiltration, rainfall-runoff models, and design of the stormwater system.

The last part of the paper deals with Groundwater Hydraulics and gives valuable information about groundwater investigations and pumping test design.

How you will be assessed

Edit How you will be assessed Content

Assessed work involves completing three laboratory reports. Each report is expected to include the following materials: original data, graphs and analysis, and interpretation of the results. Marking criteria will be provided to help you with preparing the reports.

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.

Edit How you will be assessed Content

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
