SOIL AND WATER ENGINEERING

This field is also known as soil and water resources engineering.  Engineering aids the conservation of these two resources through research on the interaction between soils, plants, and water, such as the way these resources are used in the planning of irrigation and drainage systems, soil and water conservation, as well as agricultural production facilities. With the application of tools such as artificial intelligence, remote sensing, and GIS modeling, systems are designed to solve problems related to soil and water that affect the agricultural communities.  Research on irrigation and drainage projects in the agricultural landscaping industryand recreational parks require the use of information engineering, automation, remote sensing and GIS. Research is focused on coming up with better solutions to problems in land and water resources development, and management of irrigation and drainage systems; as well as on methods to reduce and control erosion and sedimentation, and methods to reduce and control pollution of streams, rivers and lakes, and methods for water treatment. Relevant issues include increasing productivity through irrigation and drainage system design and management, control of soil erosion and sedimentation, water quality and quantity, geospatial information system, and non-point source pollution control.
