Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The first part includes basic concepts and methods that are used to
design and use various modelling tools to understand the modelling
process.  The water systems will consist of various type of land use
within watersheds of different spatial scales. Various water systems for
different land use will be evaluated for urban, natural and managed
ecosystems. The water systems will include connection to climate change
and emphasize to understand how climate will have impacts on the
hydrology but also how the hydrological systems will have an impact on
greenhouse gas emissions and climate.
The second and major part of the course consist of a project where
students are working with specific data and models.

Intended learning outcomes

The course gives skills in the use of different engineering tools to facilitate an optimal design of water resources within a specific area. The work will be organised as projects and allow both detailed familiarity with a specific well defined task and general skill in communication to understand the usability of the obtained results.

The course provides detailed familiarity to applied hydrological areas by using different quantitative tools to elucidate  a number of different problems.

 Example of areas where the students should be able to work after fulfilling the course:

·        Improving water management by using models for increasing understanding

·        Developing methods for monitoring and regulation of water system

·        Evaluation of climate variability and climate change for various spatial and temporal scales

·        Understanding the potential and the risk when using mathematical models.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • PROA - Project Task, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • PROB - Project Task, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • PROC - Project Task, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Three tasks with written individual reports. A general project that will be graded based on process of work, oral and written presentation and scientific quality.

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
