General Information

TVRL - Department of Water Resources Engineering at Lund University offers a range of courses for the water sector. They provide a wide competence with application to environmental issues, planning and management of the built environment as well as in nature. Below is a brief presentation of our various courses. If you want a more detailed description of the courses click "Courses" in the menu to the left.

All courses are given in English (except Water-VVR145) and are suitable for exchange students.


V stands for the Civil Engineering program.
W stands for the Environmental Engineering program.
WaterLU is our International Masters Program.

Coastal Hydraulics - VVRN30

Introduces and gives a basic understanding of problems and processes
encountered in different aspects of coastal engineering and integrated
coastal zone management where coastal problems and solutions are
an integrated part of society.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students.

Hydrology & Aquatic Ecology - VVRA01

Aims to provide a holistic view on the water environment both from physical and biological viewpoints. Hydrology describes the water circulation in nature and under human influence. Aquatic Ecology describes the relationship between the different components in the local and global environments.

Compulsory for W Yr 1

Fluid Mechanics - VVRF10

Gives basic knowledge in fluid mechanics required to analyze and solve water-related problems typical for environmental engineering. After the course the students should be able to solve environmental and energy related problems in water resources, water management, and water supply.

Compulsory for W Yr 3

Water - VVRA05

Gives basic knowledge required to analyze and solve water-related problems typical for civil engineering. After the course the students should be able to apply their knowledge with respect to water management, city planning, and water supply.

Compulsory for V Yr 2

Hydromechanics - VVRN35

Click on image for more info

Provides a physical understanding of phenomena and concepts in advanced water flows and introduces calculation methods to analyze a number of important hydraulic problems. The course deals mainly with free-surface flows with emphasis on open-channel hydraulics.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5 (compulsory within the Water Resources Management specialization), compulsory for WaterLU Yr 1 and Exchange Students

Environmental Hydraulics - VVRN40

Click on image for more info

Conveys a basic understanding of the phenomena and processes that control the flow of natural surface waters, with the aim to analyze the conditions and consequences of human activities in nature. The activities considered comprise mainly the discharge of pollutants, but the interaction between different types of structures and flow is also treated as well as sediment transport.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students

Integrated Water Resources Management - VVRF01

Click on image for more info

Aims at preparing the students for Integrated Water Resources Management related work in an international perspective. The course focuses on implemented of management using practical examples and projects. It discusses technical and non-technical issues, including the most common environmental water problems in both developed and developing countries.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students

Rainfall Runoff Modelling - VVRN10

Click on image for more info

Concerns water in rural areas ( as opposed to urban areas) and includes river basins, with a focus on modelling of the rainfall/runoff process.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students

International Summer Water Resources Research School - VVRF05

Click on image for more info

The aim is that the students should gain proficiency to work in a cross-cultural group in a foreign environment, and get deepened knowledge about environmental and water related issues within the framework of a minor research project.

Optional for V and W, Yr 4-5

Sustainable Development and Natural Resource Management - MIDA14

Click on image for more info

Studies natural resource use and management in developing countries from a socio-ecological perspective. The main focus is on land, water and biological resources in the light of climate change and variability.

Compulsory in Masters Program LUMID Yr 1

Water, Society and Climate Change - VVRN20

Click on image for more info

Provides methodologies and tools for adaptation of water resources systems with respect to climate change and climate variability The course provides fundamental understanding of the physical processes behind climate change and its effects on the hydrological cycle, while also considering the effects of climate change on water resource systems, affecting human society.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students (new, given 1st time spring 2015)

Pipe System Engineering and Hydraulics - VVRN25

Click on image for more info

Gives a comprehensive theoretical understanding of the hydraulics of pipe flow and pipe systems. The course includes the analysis, design, planning, and management of water, wastewater, district heating, cooling pipelines, and pipe systems.

Optional for W & V Yr 4-5, WaterLU Yr 2 and Exchange Students (new, given 1st time fall 2014)
