Hydraulic transport engineering is a sub-area of civil engineering and includes aspects of transport engineering , hydraulic engineering and river engineering .

Waterways engineering is primarily the construction and expansion of inland waterways ; these are the rivers and canals on which inland navigation takes place. In addition to the selection of the route, this includes overcoming height differences through locks and ship lifts or inclined levels (inclined conveying) and the construction of port facilities ( port construction ).

Significant achievements in hydraulic engineering were, for example, the regulation of the Neckar in the 19th century, the construction of the Kiel Canal in 1895, the Dortmund-Ems Canal in 1899, the Mittelland Canal , the Main-Danube Canal until 1992 and many other canals.
