ABOUT THE INSTITUTE AND THE DEPARTMENT
The department was established in 1955 as an Asian African Centre to honor India's commitment at the Asian African Conference held in Bandung, Indonesia. The Department offers three Post-Graduate programs, i.e. Water Resources Development (WRD) (for Civil/Electrical/Mechanical Engineers), Irrigation Water Management (IWM) (for Civil/Agricultural Engineers/Agricultural Scientists) and Drinking Water & Sanitation (DWS) (for Civil/Environmental/Mechanical/Agricultural/Chemical Engineers/B.Arch and Planning). These programs' duration is 24 months, including lectures, practical, educational tours, project reports, and dissertations. These Master of Technology (M. Tech) programs are unique to provide knowledge in fields through credit-based course works. Furthermore, there are three diploma programs of 12 months duration covering the same course work as the Post Graduate programs excluding dissertation. The programs are updated continuously, and the latest subjects such as Remote Sensing, GIS, On-farm Water Management, AI & Machine Learning, Climate Change impacts, etc., are incorporated to add great contemporary value. The department is actively involved in research, development and extension activities in the areas of water resources, hydropower and irrigation management. The department provides consultancy services for irrigation, flood control, drainage, groundwater development and power sectors. The objective of the Department is to develop manpower that can take the responsibility of sustainable development and environment friendly management of the available water resources. Non-conventional methods for utilization of water such as cropping system modeling & planning, inter-basin transfer, ground water recharge through rainwater harvesting are especially incorporated in the course curricula. The department has so far trained over 3,045 in service engineers and agricultural scientists from 56 countries including India.
