In the hydraulic laboratory, all events related to the hydrological cycle are studied. The Hydrological cycle is the process where moisture in the air forms clouds, it rains, and that water flows into the river and reaches the sea. Students divide this by theme, and each of them conducts observations, experiments and numerical analysis to proceed comprehensively with research. In addition, we study in collaboration with private companies and research institutions. As such, we engage in research that has a close relationship with real problems in society. Furthermore, we hold study groups in various areas frequently, including Soil Mechanics and Urban Planning, not limited to Hydraulics and Hydrology, to conduct complex research.
