Goals
Primary objective of the course is to teach students fundamentals of engineering activities in order to establish optimal water and salt balance for acricultural production in irrigated agriculture.
Content
Definition of drainage and historical develeopments (Introductory subjects). Principles of water and salt balance, and soil-crop-water relations in irrigated agriculture regarding agricultural drainage. Drainage investigations: preparatory studies (data acquisition from archieved files), field works for data collection, assing collected data in the office. Drainage systems: surface and subsurface drainage systems. Planning and design of drainage sytems. Monitoring and evalutaion of groundwater observations. Operation, repairs and maintenance of drainage schemes, drainage machines.

Learning Outcomes
1) Knows the importance of agricultural dainage.
2) Performs land drainage surveys; collects data; synthesizes collected data, and generates information for drainage planning purpose.
3) Defines drainage problem areas; learns surface and subsurface drainage systems, and integrates information with practice.
4) Gains the ability to plan and design drainage systems, and produces alternative projects.
5) Assesses drainage schemes in service, scrutinizes existing situation, and modifies the system by overcoming the deficiencies.
