The Water Resources Engineering Body of Knowledge describes the knowledge and core competencies integral to understanding the practice of water resources engineering. 

A water resources engineer must have a broad array of technical and non-technical knowledge, abilities, skills, and attitudes. This document articulates the Body of Knowledge for the practice of water resources engineering. The Water Resources Engineering Body of Knowledge (WREBOK) describes the knowledge and skills required to practice water resources engineering, and follows the lead established by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to define a Body of Knowledge for the practice of Civil Engineering, of which water resources engineering is a part. The American Academy of Water Resources Engineers (AAWRE) Board of Trustees desires to incorporate the WRE-BOK into the process of evaluating prospective Diplomates.
