MSc in Hydroinformatics: modelling and information systems for water management

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education

Master Postgraduate Delft

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary You will be able to understand the main water-related processes and to develop and apply computer-based mathematical models, web-based information systems and integrated hydroinformatics systems.
Course description Hydroinformatics is the study of the flow of information related to the flow of water (and all that it transports) and the interactions with its natural and artificial environments. It involves mathematical modelling and advanced information technology tools, and their application to hydraulic, hydrological and environmental problems of urban, inland and coastal waters. It provides the computer-based, decision-support systems that are revolutionising traditional planning, design and decision-making methodologies. A hydroinformatics system also allows an expert user to factor-in the physical, social and environmental consequences resulting from any action on a water body, as well as constraints expressed in natural language and to merge these with measured data, making results available to hydro-scientists and engineers in the form of computer-based, environmental impact assessment and decision-support systems.
Study subjects Fluid Dynamics; Hydraulics and Hydrological Modelling; Urban and Environmental Processes; Data-Driven Modelling; Systems/Project Management; Systems Engineering and Design; Artificial Intelligence.
Course objectives To train engineers and hydro-scientists to the use and development of modelling and communication technology tools for solving water engineering/management problems in urban and environmental contexts.
ECTS credits 106.00
Duration 19 month(s)

About the institution

Department IHE Delft
Information about the institution IHE Delft Institute for Water Education is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world and the only institution in the UN system to confer accredited MSc degrees and promote PhDs. It offers degree programmes, short courses, online courses and tailor-made training. Since 1957 the Institute has provided graduate education to more than 15,000 water professionals from over 160 countries. More than 175 PhD candidates were promoted. IHE Delft is at the centre of a vast international network of water related institutions, and functions as an interface between knowledge networks and centres, public and private sector organizations, scientific and professional associations and other members of the international water community. The Institute runs a substantial number of joint MSc programmes implemented in partnership with universities around the globe. These joint programmes combine the strengths of the collaborating institutions and deliver either multiple degrees or a joint degree.
