About The Centre for Water Informatics & Technology

Housed at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE), WIT aims to serve as a hub with a disciplinary focus on hydro-informatics and systems analysis to address the most pressing issues in the water sector with solutions that are driven by innovative practices and sustainable technological interventions. The Centre was established in 2016 against the backdrop of rising challenges in water management that are further aggravated by the impacts of climate change and the imperative of economic development. 


The staff at WIT carries out both theoretical and applied work in water related areas. Their research encompasses science, technology, practice and policy.
