Successful training courses conducted in India

In July and August 2013, several successful training courses were conducted by DHI India under THE ACADEMY by DHI.

In July, we completed two three-day training courses, one on MIKE BASIN and the other on MIKE 21 Hydrodynamics (HD) using flexible mesh. Members from various organisations with diverse backgrounds participated in these training courses. Participants included members from large public organisations (NIH, WWF), consulting firms (AECOM, JSW, Kadam Consultants) and academic institutions (IIT-Bombay, NIT-Trichy).

In August, we conducted a month-long training programme on hydrological and hydraulic modelling for engineers of the Water Resource Department, Government of Assam as part of capacity building for a Flood and River Erosion Management Agency of Assam (FREMAA) project. Engineers will use this experience to develop real-time flood forecasting system for the state of Assam, India. We would like to thank all participants and the trainers for making these courses such a success.

Several training courses are planned in the coming months, including courses on MIKE 21 and MIKE 11.
