Emmanuel Okwori has a B.Eng. in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering from Ahmadu Bello University and an M.Eng. In Civil Engineering specializing in Civil Infrastructure Management and Maintenance from the University of Cape Town.

Research interests include urban water and civil infrastructure planning, design, and asset management. Ph.D. research is currently morphing around the efficient and effective data usage for improved and optimized asset management strategies and renewal /rehabilitation strategies for water and sewer pipe infrastructure for municipal systems in Sweden. Currently projects include:

       I.          Investigating data quality  and management for efficient  co infra-coordination of drinking  water, wastewater and storm water pipes

      II.          Influencing factors and management strategies for blockages in sewer networks

Industry experience includes Water Supply and Sewer Pipeline Design, Drainage Design, Hydraulic & Hydrology Design and Construction Site Supervision Management for both brown and green field projects including flood alleviation and Gully erosion sites across Africa and Australia. Including 3D modelling of hydraulic infrastructure.  Recently completed projects include the Design of the water main replacement through Melbourne’s CBD and Wentworth Shire Council’s sewer rationalisation and upgrade project in NSW Australia
