Urban & Inland Training Week
June 2018

Accelerate your modelling capabilities during June with this generous capacity building opportunity 

Receive 50% off Urban and Flood training for the week of June 18th-22nd
In conjunction with recent software campaigns we are offering a chance to get your team trained up in MIKE URBAN and MIKE FLOOD for half price!

Get in quick as places are limited and filling up fast.

18th - 19th June

If you work in urban infrastructure you will benefit greatly from this introductory course. It is also helpful for post graduate students in environmental engineering. Participants from government organisations,  non-governmental organisations and the private sector are encouraged to join in. As well, this course is ideal for practicing engineers who are working in the water and environment, water supply and sewerage and storm water systems. 

This course is now full. Find out when the next one will be.

21st - 22nd June

Professionals involved in flood management, flood risk assessment or other flood related studies will benefit. Participants must be acquainted with the basic  functionalities of MIKE HYDRO River and/or MIKE URBAN COLLECTION SYSTEMS (MU CS) prior to the course either through experience or through participation in  the MIKE HYDRO River course  ‘Introduction to river and channel modelling’ and/or the MU CS course ‘Introduction to the modelling of collection systems’.

Take a look over the course topics

Introduction to collection systems

  • Course Overview
    Course Overview

    This two-day course in Auckland gives you an introduction to data management and numerical modelling of urban collection system networks (separate and combined) in order to enable you to set up and run simple MU CS models.

    - Overview of MIKE URBAN and the project concept
    - GIS functionalities: Selection, layers, symbology, labelling, etc.
    - Model data requirements and model building principles.
    - Manual and graphic data input and editing options.
    - Essentials of data import/export functionality.
    - Tools for facilitating the modelling process.
    - Surface runoff methods.
