Our state-of-the-art four-storied building, generously funded by the South Asia Foundation and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Late Shri Madanjeet Singh, is located next to the Civil Engineering Complex, and offers a range of dedicated spaces for staff and students, including lecture theaters, computer labs, research and self-study areas, and more.
But that’s just the beginning! Outside, our experimental areas allow you to witness practical applications in three distinct water specialties: Irrigation, Urban Storm Water Drainage, and Riverine and Estuary Ecosystems. Take advantage of our advanced level of application and extensive hands-on research experiences.

At UMCSAWM, we push the boundaries of research in Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modeling, System Dynamics based Management and Operational approaches, and cutting-edge modern design. Our advanced measurement and prediction systems, powered by high-end computing systems, enable us to analyze a range of issues, from local flooding to global climate change scenarios.
Whether you’re a full-time or part-time student, or an industry professional joining our short-term courses and workshops, you’ll have access to our large-scale systems that simulate natural and man-made systems, providing you with a deeper understanding of issues and solutions for sustainable, integrated water resources management options.
Our students also benefit from hands-on experience with the latest analysis and design software packages, including WaterCAD, CulvertMaster, MIKE11/21, HecRAS, SWMM5, Extend Sim for Modelling, Civil 3D, ArcGIS, and more. Join our cutting-edge research community today and advance your knowledge and skills in water resources engineering and management.
At UMCSAWM, we boast an exceptional Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory, featuring an Open Channel flow Tilting Flume, Circular Orifice Apparatus, Pelton Wheel Turbine, Centrifugal Water Pump, Pump/Turbine Apparatus, Flow Measuring Apparatus, Pipe Friction Apparatus, Hydrostatic Pressure Apparatus, Pontoon Apparatus, Forced Vortex Apparatus, Infiltrometer, Hydraulic Ram Pumps, Groundwater Flow Analysis equipment, Fluid Properties and Hydrostatic Bench, and other top-of-the-line apparatus for demonstrative studies.
Moreover, the laboratory has specialized equipment available for research on hydraulic transients in conduit flow, surge tanks, precipitation and overland flow, flow through porous media, a scaled irrigation model, and much more. Additionally, instrumentation is readily available for field studies, such as velocity measurements in streams, ultrasound flow measurement for conduits, dye concentration measurements, and pumping tests. Come explore our impressive Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory and find out what hands-on learning is all about!
At UMCSAWM, we accommodate full-time international students from SAARC countries, and offer part-time research scholar positions to local students with an engineering background, including fresh graduates and experienced industry practitioners. Our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are complemented by an outdoor experimental area, and an automated weather station capable of measuring prevailing climatic conditions and uploading real-time data to the web through satellite transmission networks. Join us today and be part of cutting-edge research in water resources management!
