The hydroinformatics chair group is concerned with the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and modelling, and their application for resolving water-related problems in civil engineering, and information 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 systems.

The main areas of application are flood and river basin management, urban and coastal systems. Find out more about the MSc programme in Hydroinformatics.

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.
