These must be managed for a given environment from a base understanding of fundamental properties of soil and water, including basic hydrology, hydraulics and geotechnics. Land engineering also covers the basis management of projects involving land forming, reclamation or protection which require selection, design and engineering of appropriate structures.
The course is designed to enable land managers and engineers to classify land according to capability and to allow for appraising the risks posed to the landscape. Such professionals will gain skills to use their knowledge on interventions such as drainage and irrigation.
