Introduction to MIKE URBAN+ FLOOD

Blended Online Learning: A self-paced course combined with online one-to-one tutoring

Use the MIKE URBAN+ platform for flood modelling!

This new online course allows attendees to learn at their own pace. It includes topics ranging from the basic principles of integrated urban flood modelling to technical details such as how to set-up an integrated 1D-2D urban flood model with 2D overland, collection system, and channel components in MIKE URBAN+. 

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training!

Are you an urban flood engineer in practice or training? Do you wish to learn how to use MIKE URBAN+ for integrated flood modelling? Do you have a basic knowledge of Collection System modelling with the software?

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

If yes, you can benefit from this blended online learning/self-paced course. You’ll learn the basic options for viewing integrated flood modelling results and how to interpret them. After finishing the course, you’ll be able to apply your learnings to perform urban flood modelling using MIKE URBAN+ in relation to your work in flood risk management and planning, and other related domains.


DHI has added extra course materials offering you the opportunity to invest an extra 1-2 hours of self-study per session to master the software.

Course details

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

Approximately 120 minutes (two hours) word per module is expected to get the maximum out of the course in addition to two 30 minute one-to-one online tutor meetings.

Module 1: Collection system networks and flood modelling – Review of MIKE URBAN+ and 1D network flood modelling

Module 2: Integrated flood modelling overview – Preview of basic integrated flood modelling workflow in MIKE URBAN+

Module 3: 2D Overland modelling – Introduction to 2D overland models and building urban domain meshes in MIKE URBAN+

Module 4: 1D-2D Coupling – How to couple network and 2D overland models in MIKE URBAN+

Module 5: Introduction to river networks – Extra module introducing natural channel and river modelling in MIKE URBAN+

Module 6: Running flood simulations and viewing results – Setting up and running flood simulations and viewing results
