The objective of the training is to teach participants the basics in planning, designing and modeling of water demand, and distribution of large infrastructure projects, estate and districts. Participants will learn the fundamentals of practical design approach from first principles. Also participants will be introduced to the use of computer software called Epanet to model and stimulate the network and see its practicability.
The materials used for the training is drawn from the International Master Course of the University of Stuttgart, Water Resources Engineering and Management (WAREM). German Code and Standards will be applied during the training
Wasser & Bau is offering this training as part of its vision to develop Infrastructure engineers within the Nigerian engineering community with capacity to design and model infrastructure systems in Nigeria. This initiative is aims at filling the space hitherto manned by foreign expariates due to lack of qualified design professionals in these areas.
