Hydrotechnical Division

The Hydrotechnical Division develops CSCE’s leadership role in advancing multidisciplinary research and professional practice in the field of hydraulic and hydrological engineering from both practice and academia.

The Hydrotechnical Division is mandated to:
– champion and coordinate the development of national hydrotechnical infrastructure;
– work collaboratively together with Canadian Municipalities, and other stakeholders to achieve the goals of the committee;
– promote civil engineers as technical leaders in hydraulic and hydrotechnical engineering;
– advance multidisciplinary research in the field of hydraulic and hydrological engineering;
– develop knowledge dissemination venues for hydraulic and water resources engineers and research through CSCE conference and Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering; and
– develop a repository of national experts in hydrotechnical and water resources engineering.

The Hydrotechnical Division will report to the Programs Coordinating Committee.
