Colorado State University's Engineering School Integrates MWH Software into Curriculum 8.24.04
MWH Soft Inc., a global provider of water resources applications software, announced that the top-ranked Civil Engineering Department at Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort-Collins, CO is training its undergraduate students in advanced hydraulic infrastructure modeling with MWH Soft H2ONET software for CAD-based water distribution systems analysis and management package.
The Department of Civil Engineering at Colorado State University is nationally and internationally regarded as one of the premier programs of its kind in the United States, particularly in water resources engineering. Led by over 30 faculty with water resources expertise, CSU is one of few institutions in the world to offer students superb instruction in the areas of water resources management, irrigation and drainage engineering, fluid mechanics, steam restoration, wetlands and river mechanics, environmental engineering, hydraulic engineering, urban water systems analysis, geoenvironmental engineering, and groundwater engineering.
With the support of the faculty and practicing engineers, civil and environmental engineering students at CSU have multiple opportunities to gain real-world design experience. A capstone two-semester Senior Design course allows students draw on their four years of technical skill-building to develop and design an engineering project, giving them the skills they need to land jobs and internships in the professional world.
As a complete modeling tool, H2ONET is the ultimate teaching and research solution for engineering students. Its comprehensive and industry-leading functionality and ease of use allow them to quickly construct and analyze representative models of actual water distribution systems, then use those models to improve system reliability and performance. H2ONET's state-of-the-art computational capabilities let students develop and evaluate a range of sound, cost-effective design, rehabilitation and operational strategies in a very short time. In addition, the innovation behind H2ONET and its momentum in the marketplace make it an essential addition to the University's engineering curriculum.
