Field Experimental Stations

The UMCSAWM Centre focuses on pioneering in research in the areas of water management and water resources engineering with specific relevance to South Asian countries. The Centre accommodates fulltime international students from SAARC countries, while part-time research scholar positions are also available to local students, both fresh graduates and experienced industry practitioners with an engineering background.


Facility for Soil Moisture and IoT application Research for Water Management is supported by private funding

Field Experimental Station is Nearing Completion is from a University Research Grant

Further to the laboratory facilities available in the Department of Civil Engineering, an outdoor experimental area is available to conduct research as well as to demonstrate practical applications in three distinct water specialties, namely, Irrigation, Urban Storm Water Drainage, and Riverine and Estuary Ecosystems.  An automated weather station, capable of measurement of prevailing climatic conditions and real-time uploading to the web through satellite transmission networks, is set up at the Centre premises.  These facilities will ensure an extensive exposure and hands on research experiences at an advanced level of application to the participants of all UMCSAWM programmes.
