Digital Course Content
The course is also offered to exchange programme students.
Language of Instruction
  • Greek (Instruction, Examination)
  • English (Instruction, Examination)
General Prerequisites
The student should be aware of the basic principles of Open channel hydraulics which are usually included in a main compulsory course like a Hydrulics course. Also, he/she should know well to use the EXCEL since most of the problems, which they will have to solve, need iterations and hence the use of EXCEL will facilitate their work.
Learning Outcomes
After the successful completion of the course the students will be able to (1) design open channels, sewers and culverts (2) determine the discharge capacity of streams and rivers and design flood protection schemes (3) determine the discharge capacity ( water and sediments) of alluvial channels (4) select and use appropriate methods for measuring the discharge in streams and rivers
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Design and manage projects
