Abstract: Stakeholders and industry expressed concern at the lack of interest by many students in taking up careers in hydrology and water resources engineering . This was partly attributed to the limited extent of coverage in the courses offered in Department of Civil Engineering at Makerere University. This paper discusses how with the assistance from an industry based engineer, a new curriculum was designed that would reflect the requirements of industry and would compare favourably with any other course nationally and internationally. It also demonstrates new methods in teaching learning and assessment that supported the new curriculum. Reports from both the external examiner and stakeholders were very encouraging about the standard achieved. It suggests that curriculum revision should be a regular and should involve stakeholders.
