Urban Water Systems Course


This course aims to provide the participants with the ability to assess alternative modelling software systems, build safe and reliable models and know how to use them for planning, design, operation and maintenance of particular urban water systems.


5 Days

Who should attend

The course is designed for professionals (engineers and scientists) active in the water sector, especially those involved in using simulation models for water distribution, wastewater and storm water networks, treatment plants and the water quality of receiving streams
