1. Water Resources Engineering

The objective of the Department of Water Resources Engineering (WRE) is to increase the number of highly skilled professionals in the areas of water, energy, environment, and infrastructure engineering which are vital fields for humans development. Supporting the development of CWEE as a College of excellence will lead to the achievement of our goals. 

Awards B.Sc. in Water Resources Engineering

2. Environmental Engineering

From all engineering disciplines, Environmental Engineering is probably the one which has to deal with the largest uncertainty in its models and data; in addition, it is frequently subject to limited data and scarce information.

About the College

College of Water and Environmental Engineering was found in 1962 as Wad Elmagboul Institute for Earth Sciences. In 1990s, the College was changed into the College of Water Engineering and Technology and then finally to its recent name. Currently the College offers interdisciplinary undergraduate programs that consist of joint programs in the fields of Water Resource Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The college consists of two departments: the Department of Water Resources Engineering, the Department of Environmental Engineering. Currently, the undergraduate program comprises two specialty programs: Water Engineering and Environmental Engineering at undergraduate level; offers the basic knowledge required for water resource and environmental majors. The program is designed to train students with a strong foundation for engineering practice and for further study in the related fields. Degree Requirements The requirement for a degree of B.Sc Honours in Water Resources Engineering is the successful completion of 209 credits of courses, plus 44 credits of field training. The requirement for a degree of B.Sc Honours in Environmental Engineering is the successful completion of 212 credits of courses, plus 44 credits of field training. 

The College of Water and Environmental Engineering is one of Sudan University of Science and Technology colleges, it is looking forward to be the leading Water and Environment Engineering Collage within Sudan and the Region as a whole. It aims to graduate highly knowledgeable young engineers and technicians with B.Sc. and diploma with honor degrees in Water and Environmental Engineering and Planning and post-graduate studies who will shoulder the responsibility of developing and upgrading water and environment investigation, planning, execution and monitoring. In addition to the study programs, the college will conduct applied research to contribute to solving the water and environmental problems facing the country.

It is one of the college objectives to help in achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals to reduce by half the proportion of the people without suitable access to safe drinking water by the year 2015 and to ensure sustainable environmental development as well as to help in fulfilling the government five and twenty- five years national plans.

  • To graduate qualified students well equipped with knowledge and skills in his/her specialization to be ready for problem solving.
  • Contribute to the development of the country by leading applied research for solving problems associated with water and environment.
  • Assist in the training and awareness of trainers in different aspects of water and environmental engineering for the development of the community, country and the region, and to encourage the implementation of groundwater legislations.
  • To keep the university staff-members, technicians and administrative staff up-to-date with technologies in their fields so as to interact with similar national, regional and international institutes e.g. training, exchange, joint, research…..etc.
  • Monitoring and assessment of water and environmental related issues.
