Water Resource and Environmental Engineering:

The importance of getting knowledge related to the Water Resources and the Environment as one of the branches of the natural sciences is rooted in the unlimited and ever increasing need of humanity for water and due to its increase of consumption, which itself has created irreparable risks over Water Resources. It is necessary to strengthen the water sector in a country that involves sustainable development, which results in the well-being and livelihood of the people of that society. According to this principle, the leadership of the Kabul Polytechnic University has created this faculty in its own frame in 2014, in line with the policy and development plans of the Kabul Polytechnic University's Leadership Board, and endorsement by the Ministry of Higher Education of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan for the development of the higher education sector and Professional and training of scientific and technical cadres in the country to provide expert cadres according to the needs of the country to the community.

At the Faculty of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering, there are currently two graduate departments (Hydraulics & Hydraulic Structures and Water Supply and Environmental Engineering Departments) and a General Department of Economics and History. Although there are a total of five departments in the establishment of the Faculty, there are two departments that are called the Department of Irrigation Structures Engineering that will be a graduate department and other is a general Department of Hydraulics and Hydrology, that will teach hydraulics and hydrology for all departments of university, But in spite of the lack of classrooms and facilities, we could not start the activities of these two departments, and we are confident that if we get the solution to this problem, we will enable these departments at our earliest.
