Modelling and simulation of wastewater treatment plants with WEST

Online training on DHI’s dedicated WWTP modelling tool

Have a fresh start with WWTP modelling
– and get it done with WEST!

This brand new online course provides you with a comprehensive training in the use of WEST, allowing you to solve challenges related to WWTP design, operation and optimisation.

Affordable and convenient high-quality technical training!

Are you a professional, a researcher or a decision maker in the field of wastewater engineering?

How about adding modelling to your portfolio of tools and becoming effective in addressing challenges related to wastewater treatment and resource recovery?

All it takes is two hours of self-study and attending a two-hour online session per week for five weeks.

If you’re up to it, this course is for you!

You will be introduced to the main features of WEST and you will learn how to implement and simulate a virtual WWTP model. Upon course completion, you will be able to understand and reproduce the operation of a real WWTP, evaluate and possibly optimise its performance in terms of treatment, energy and cost efficiency.

We are including extra course material that will allow you to get more in-depth with the use of WEST by investing extra self-study time.

Course details and important dates

This online course is divided into five sessions starting from Wednesday 29 May (practical information on the course) and continuing on 06 June, 12 June, 19 June and 26 June. Depending on your preferences, you can choose from the following timings: 05:00-07:00 UTC or 13:00-15:00 UTC
