Hohai University (HHU) is the largest university in the world dedicated to the research and education in the area of hydro-environment science and engineering. Its discipline of Hydraulic Engineering ranks No. 1 nationwide and its discipline of Environmental Science and Engineering ranks No. 8th among all Chinese universities. The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organization of over four thousand engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application.
As part of a collaboration agreement between IAHR and HHU signed by the Presidents of the two bodies in 2015, a Committee on Higher Education and E-Learning has been established within the Innovation and Professional Development Division (IPD) of the Association. This Committee has been formed with a view to enhance higher education cooperation among IAHR members globally, and especially in talent cultivation and professional training. The IAHR-Hohai Collaborative Committee is committed to international collaboration among universities and research institutions in the hydro-environment domain in terms of discipline and cross-discipline development, teaching materials and textbook development, and teaching methodology improvement.
The IAHR-Hohai Collaborative Committee will offer “IAHR-Hohai Scholarship” to selected international students to pursue their PhD degrees in the hydro-environment area at Hohai University.
