PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES:
At the end of the EC220 Programme, students should be able to:

PEO 1: Have a sound understanding of, as well as the ability to apply


fundamental principles of engineering knowledge and are capable of
expanding this knowledge through engineering and scientific research.
PEO 2: Practice with strong professional ethics and understand the impacts
of engineering projects on the environment, society, politics and the well-
being of local and regional economy.
PEO 3: Are able to communicate effectively with members of the profession
and the society in general on engineering and non-engineering subjects.
PEO 4: Have the competency to contribute as ateam member of a multi-
disciplinary team or assume the role of a team leader in projects undertaken
within or beyond the national boundaries.
PEO 5: Have the ability to adapt to changes in economic climate through
awareness on contemporary issues, entrepreneurship and lifelong learning
skills.
PROGRAMME OUTCOMES:
Graduates from an accredited programme should have the following attributes:

1. Ability to acquire and apply basic knowledge of science, mathematics


and engineering.
2. Ability to communicate effectively, not only with engineers but also with the public.
3. Ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
4. Ability to use a system approach to design and evaluate operational performance.
5. Ability to act effectively as an individual and in a group with leadership and
managerial capabilities.
6. Understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities and
ethics of a professional engineer, and the need for sustainable development.
7. Acquiring the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so.
8. Ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
9. Ability to function in multidisciplinary teams.
10. Having technical competency and ability to apply to specific civil engineering
discipline.
11. Having the knowledge of contemporary issues.
12. Ability to demonstrate and apply knowledge and understanding of project
management principles, finance and entrepreneurship.
COURSE OUTCOMES:
At the end of the course, students should be able to:

1. Apply knowledge of fundamentals in hydrology namely water budget


equation, precipitation, evaporation, infiltration and streamflow
measurement;

2. Undertake problem identification, formulation and solution pertaining


to hydrograph analysis, frequency analysis, and flood routing and
groundwater analysis; and

2. Design project related to urban hydrology using the current Malaysian


standard.
COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:
The course introduces hydrological cycle and concept of water
budget. Precipitation, evaporation and infiltration processes are
discussed that include measurements and analysis. Stream flow
measurements, stage-discharge, rainfall-runoff relationships and
hydrograph analysis are explained. Rational method, flood
routing and the use of probability and statistical method in
hydrologic analysis are presented. Applications of hydrology
principles in urban stormwater design using procedures outlined in
Manual Saliran Mesra Alam Malaysia (MSMA) are discussed.
The course concludes with an introduction to hydrologic modeling
and simulation.
