Africa Online Summer School

The Africa Online Summer School is organized by the IAHR-Africa Division. It is initiated as a commitment from IAHR to reach and connect with African scholar, young professionals, and institutes; and as a mean to promote collaborations that will create solutions for the water security and climate change challenges and help meet net-zero and sustainability targets. The main objective of the school is to introduce the main principles hydro-environmental engineering and their importance and practical applications in Africa

The Africa Online Summer School is FREE for IAHR members. Not a member yet? Register and receive a one-year free membership!

 Deliverables

Upon completion, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of hydro-environmental engineering and its impact on water infrastructures.

  • Understand the fundamentals and main principles behind each field of hydro-environmental engineering.

  • Be familiar with projects and applications where the hydro-environmental engineering is involved.

  • Identify leading experts in the field of hydro-environmental engineering and be familiar with IAHR.

  • Identify research and engineering streams that African scholars and professionals should focus on and/or explore. 

 For whom?

This course is intended for a broad audience. Whether you are a young professional or a senior, academic or practitioner, the course will help you to learn, identify and connect between the different aspects of hydro-environmental engineering

 Workload

The course is composed of 18 lectures. Two lectures are given each day. In total, the school is composed of 13h of lectures (45min for each lecture).
