Prerequisites

Hydraulics, hydrology, GIS, water management courses

Corequisites

not required

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Teaching involves the use of e-learning (LMS Moodle). Part of the course is also the completion of the term project.

Forms and criteria of assessment

Successful completion of the course requires the following conditions: 100% presence, exceptionally 2 seminars - apologized, term project completion (final report and presentation).

Objective

The goals of the course are:
to teach the principles and operation of hydroinformatics in water management;
to give information about input data and simulation models in water management;
to develop individual experience in the use of hydroinformatics through execution of a term projects.
