Established in 1973 as a unit of the University, the National Hydraulic Research Center (NHRC) was created to conduct research and provide technical advice on various problems of water resources development and management, hydrology, hydraulic, coastal engineering, fluid mechanics, and other related field.

In its more than three decades of existence, NHRC has developed and serves as the national center for water-resource expertise and provides the support organization and physical facilities for conducting the necessary physical and mathematical modeling research and producing technical outputs, studies, and advice in water resources engineering and management needed by government and the private sector. Most of these studies involve the evaluation of proposed dams, hydroelectric plants, irrigation works, water supply systems, ports and harbors, and flood control structures.
