Hydraulic/water engineering field of expertise is concerned with the principles of water in motion and its interactions with the surrounding environment. It is also concerned with the control and management of water resources, which involves applying fluid mechanics to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water.
In any project involving large amount of water, a hydraulic/water engineer is engaged to work on various features which interact with water such as spillways and outlets for dams, canals, culverts for roads and other larger facilities.
The hydraulic/water engineers are also employed to design structures such as dams, levees, water distribution networks, storm water management and sewage collection networks.
