Hydraulic engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering concerned with the flow and conveyance of fluids, principally water. This area of engineering is intimately related to the design of bridges, dams, channels, canals, and levees, and to both sanitary and environmental engineering.

Common topics of Design for Hydraulic Engineers includes Hydraulic Structures, including Dams and Levees, Water Distribution Networks, Water Collection Networks, Storm Water Management, Sediment Transport, and various other topics related to Transportation engineering and Geotechnical engineering.
