Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will complete the fundamental knowledge concerning flood hydrology, preparatory to the more practical courses the student will deal with in the second cycle degree in “Civil Engineering” or in “Environmental and Land Management Engineering”.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the Course the student will be able to statistically estimate heavy rainfalls and flood discharges, to apply rainfall-runoff models and to determine steady-state flow profiles in rivers. Ultimately, the student will be able to develop a hydrological report, preparatory to river planning projects.
The student should be able to understand, with critical mind, hydrological data and to critically evaluate hydrological reports.
After the examination the student will have acquired a correct use of technical language and should be able to explain in a clear and convincing manner the results of hydrological data processing with the support of technical graphs, tables and texts.
