Veuillez noter :
This course is held online over 2 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern

After participating in this course, you will be able to do the following:

  • solve common hydrology and hydraulic engineering problems
  • employ latest techniques in hydrology and hydraulic design procedures
  • apply various analysis methods to estimate flows in rivers and drainage infrastructure
  • assess the design of streams and rivers, culverts, bridge openings, drainage facilities, and stormwater management structures

Stormwater Management is a branch of engineering concerned with the study of water and the protection of people and property from the damaging effect of surface water.

The course was prepared for non-engineers and technicians who need a basic understanding of the three most commonly used branches of hydrotechnical engineering:

  • Engineering hydrology
  • Hydraulics of drainage infrastructure
  • Drainage and stormwater management

This course provides the fundamentals without delving into complicated mathematical formulas. Lectures will include real life examples and simple hands-on exercises and problem-solving.

Who Should Attend
Engineers and technologists not familiar with hydrotechnical engineering, such as:

  • civil engineers
  • mechanical engineers
  • electrical engineers
  • mining engineers
  • chemical engineers
  • agricultural engineers
  • municipal engineers
    • manufacturers of drainage products
    • general contractors
    • property managers
    • directors of physical plants
    • municipal building officials
    • building inspectors
    • field review personnel
    • project engineers
    • others who would like to know more about hydrotechnical systems, or require a refresher

Requirements and Special Features
Participants are expected to have some elementary technical knowledge of engineering principles.
Notes will be provided in electronic format. Please have a standard engineering calculator with scientific functions, a laptop, with Microsoft Windows, MS Excel spreadsheet, or equivalent. The course includes a comprehensive list of reference material available on the internet from government & non-government organizations.
