LWRD Home

The Land and Water Resources Division (LWRD), formerly the Department of Land and Water Resources Engineering (LAWREAT), was created to: (1) provide national leadership in graduate and undergraduate instruction in land and water resources engineering and technology; (2) assume a lead role in developing integrated plans and policies in land and water resources conservation, development and utilization; (3) spearhead the conduct of developmental and policy oriented studies concerning land and water resources utilization and conservation; (4) pursue active involvement in the process of technology transfer at the local and national levels; and (5) serve as a center for identifying critical information gaps, compiling, analyzing and generating baseline information and identifying potential growth points in land and water resources development.

In support of the UPLB’s goals towards national development and in line with the university’s three-fold function of instruction, research and extension, the objectives of LWRD are the following:

 

  1. Provide formal training in land and water resources engineering;
  2. Undertake research geared towards exploring solutions to relevant problems in land and water resources engineering; and,
  3. Extend technical expertise and information about land and water resources engineering through consultancy, non-degree training programs and publications.
