Practical work experiences: Participated in various engineering assignments and gained experiences in design hydrology, catchment studies, flood routing, building construction, irrigation infrastructures, and small-scale earth dam construction as well as other relevant water resources projects. Some of the projects that Mr. Tewolde had participated are shown on this link page
Simultaneously, he enriched and enhanced his proficiency in using engineering instruments and software programs. Consequently, he is capable of utilizing surveying instruments such as Total-station and Theodolites. Moreover, able to use engineering software packages such as Revit AutoCAD, ArcGIS, Web ArcGIS, ArcGIS Pro, HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, Bentley Software program (civil-storm, pond pack, Flow master and others), image processing software programs (IDRISI, PCI-Geomatica), and others.
Through years of experiences, he has developed his skills and has the essential proficiency to take part in prominent engineering undertakings that may possibly incorporate hydrologic design, dam and irrigation infrastructure as well as building construction supervisions.
Peer-reviewed articles along with other Publications are presented here
Current Activity (2015-2019):
Analyzing catchment data employing the latest hydrological models which include HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, GIS, GISPro, Bentley Softwares and other engineering software programs. moreover, he is doing more literature reviews in flood routing, catchment study and design hydrology
Exploring Visual Basic Net 2015 and python programming language aiming to build software applications or procedure to the research he had completed years ago. (Flood routing method in ungauged catchments) . studying more advanced Mathematics, advanced Statistics and advanced physics to deal and solve problems in hydrology.
Future objectives :
Long-term ambition and explorations lie in mastering his profession to harness water resources proficiently in an effort to alleviate future water shortage crisis. Additionally, more participation in the practice of civil engineering projects, construction of dam, building, hydraulic structure.
