eLearning Program

Discover the world of groundwater modelling

About the eLearning Program

The online course program on groundwater modelling allows you to learn from home or office. Avoid tight schedules and high travel expenses and benefit from a flexible learning environment.

Our instructor-led online courses are designed as a combination of hands-on software exercises and lectures on theory and relevant practical aspects. This groundwater course program covers a variety of different topics such as groundwater modelling at mine sites, reactive transport, FEFLOW Python interfacing, geothermal applications, density-driven flow and much more.

FEFLOW is widely recognised as a most comprehensive software package for subsurface flow and transport simulation. FEFLOW’s unique meshing capabilities (structured and unstructured) provide the highest degree of flexibility in all modelling processes. The software is used by leading research institutes, universities, consulting firms and government organisations all over the world.
