The Department of Hydraulic Engineer­ing covers subjects including surface and groundwater hydraulics, construction, econom­ic and ecological problems associated with the design, construction, maintenance and reconstruction of hydraulic structures such as weirs, waterways, harbours and structures for hydropower utilisation. Research and teaching is supported by a hydraulics laboratory.

The Department's research activities are es­pecially aimed at problems of locks and weir hydraulics, free-surface water flow in open channels, non-stationary flow in systems, con­struction of small hydroelectric power plants, hydro-electric power plants and pump-fed power plants, hydrodynamics of subsurface water, impacts of hydraulic structures on the environment, and mathematical simulation of hydraulic and hydrological processes.
