Hydroinformatics

Hydroinformatics uses simulation modelling and information and communication technology to help in solving problems of hydraulics, hydrology and environmental engineering for better management of water-based systems.


Knowledge management is a discipline that generally seeks an effective exchange of knowledge between staff and participants. This is achieved by integrating appropriate ICT systems for knowledge sharing and web-based collaborative working. The chair group is also involved in the development of online tools and facilities for distance education and e-learning.

Hydroinformatics:
modelling and infomation systems
for integrated water management

Hydroinformatics uses simulation modelling and information and communication technology to help in solving problems of hydraulics, hydrology and environmental engineering for better management of water-based systems.

 


It utilises Web-based information and knowledge systems, and computer-based modelling tools for river systems, urban drainage and water supply networks, estuaries and coastal waters, to provide support for decision making at all levels of management and operations. There is a growing need for professionals and managers to appreciate and work with computer-based technologies and tools.

In 1991 IHE was the first to promote Hydroinformatics as a discipline and as a postgraduate Masters programme.
