A Comprehensive Course in
Urban Drainage Modelling

Using MIKE+ Collection System (MIKE 1D)

An online, self-paced course combined with private virtual meetings with a DHI urban water tutor

This course teaches you how to address urban drainage modelling in a comprehensive and holistic way. It enables you to consolidate and develop your modelling skills to a level where you can apply your knowledge across a variety of urban drainage projects.

Bonus: Completing this course unlocks your ability to enrol in more advanced MIKE+ training courses.

Affordable and convenient high-quality technical training!

Do you work in the field of urban storm water drainage or wastewater collection?

Do you have a basic knowledge of urban hydrology and network hydraulics?

Then you’re ready to learn how to set up urban collection system models, run simulations and review results across a variety of projects using MIKE+.

All you have to do is complete 6-module, self-paced from the comfort of your own convenient location and arrange two 30-minute online sessions.

As a bonus, you get 1-2 hours of extra course materials per session so you can dive even deeper via self-study into the features of MIKE+ Collection System (MIKE 1D).
