A Comprehensive Course in
Water Distribution Modelling

Using MIKE URBAN+ Water Distribution (MU+ WD)

Online learning: A self-paced course combined with online meetings with your own private DHI urban tutor

This course will teach you how to address water distribution modelling in a comprehensive and holistic way. It will enable you to consolidate and continue developing your modelling skills up to the level where you can apply your knowledge across a variety of water distribution projects. The course will provide you with the possibility of enrolling in more advanced MIKE URBAN+ training courses.

Affordable and convenient high-quality technical training!

Are you a professional, a researcher, or similar in the fields of water supply and water distribution? Do you have a basic knowledge of pipe network hydraulics?

Are you prepared to allocate time for twelve self-paced modules and two online one-to-one meetings (approximately thirteen hours)?

If yes, you can benefit from this online learning course. Upon completion, you will be able to apply the features of MIKE URBAN+ that are essential to set up water distribution models, run simulations and review results.

As a bonus, DHI has added extra course materials, offering you the opportunity to invest an extra 1-2 hours of self-study per session to dive even deeper into the features of the MIKE URBAN+ WD software.

Course details

This is a self-paced course. You will learn online, through video lectures, demonstration videos and quizzes, hands-on exercises and reading materials. Additionally, you get two one-to-one online meetings with your own DHI urban tutor. In this way, your learning process and objectives are optimised.

Approximately 60 minutes (one hour) work per module is expected to get the maximum out of the course in addition to two 30-minute one-to-one online tutor meetings.

You are expected to complete your course and online meetings within 30 days of receiving receipt of your free, Internet license.
