Rationale
In India water requirement is rapidly increasing due to vast industrial development and population growth. We are mostly dependent on rain as a predominant source of water. Looking to scarcity of water in our country, it is essential to store the water in appropriate manner for anticipated requirement. Irrigation engineering is the artificial process of applying water to the soil to help in growing agriculture crops or maintaining the landscapes when there is shortage of natural water by rain. It deals with the analysis and design of irrigation systems which include dams, weir, barrage, canals, drains and other supporting system etc. This course has been designed to develop theoretical and practical knowledge in order to implement the irrigation designs and operate irrigation systems.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Explain various methods of irrigation
ii. Compute water requirement for crops
iii. Implement sprinkler irrigation system and drip irrigation system
iv. Explain the methods to control the level in Reservoir Planning
v. Explain process of evaluation of irrigation project
