Wolkite University hydraulics engineering Department – Check Below:
To: College of Engineering and Technology
Subject: To report the mission, vision and profile of the department
As described in the title above, this notice that the mission, vision and the profile of Hydraulic and water resources engineering department.
1.1 Background and Demand of the Program
The hydraulic engineering undergraduate program was started in Hydraulic Engineering department, a predecessor of the current hydraulic and water resources department in Arba Minch University. The program was one of the three founding departments of Arba Minch Water Technology Institute [AWTI] which was established in 1986 G.C.
The opening of the program in the other universities of the country is in tandem with the country’s efforts towards developing its water resources in a sustainable way. Though Ethiopia is endowed with a large amount of water resources, critical shortage of capacity has greatly hampered the development of the water sector.  Moreover, frequent floods and droughts have become serious water related problems in the country. So the development of water resources must be a central element of the country’s strategy to improve the quality of life of the people.
1.2 Vision and Mission of the program
Vision
Hydraulic and Water Resource Engineering program aspires to be a centre of excellence in the field of water resources in Africa and competitive in the world by 2020. 
Mission
Hydraulic and Water Resource Engineering program has a mission of offering relevant and quality education and training; conducting demand driven research and rendering accessible community services.
Goals
The Hydraulic and Water Resource Engineering program shall have the following goals;

  • Ensure the quality of education and training in water technology
  • Advance research and consultancy works in water Technology
  • Improve services to the community
  • Develop a conducive environment for learning and teaching
