Course Description

If you’re interested in the concept of building with nature, then this is the engineering course for you. This course explores the use of natural materials and ecological processes in achieving effective and sustainable hydraulic infrastructural designs. You will learn the Building with Nature ecosystem-based design concept and its applications in water and coastal systems. During the course, you will be presented with a range of case studies to deepen your knowledge of ecological and engineering principles.

You’ll learn from leading Dutch engineers and environmental scientists who see the Building with Nature integrated design approach as fundamental to a new generation of engineers and ecologists.

Join us in exploring the interface between hydraulic engineering, nature and society.

Fascinating concept and well-organised course. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in hydraulic engineering and water management in general. I found the course content clearly explained and the assignments made it possible to test and apply the received knowledge directly. Thank you for the amazing effort you have put in this. I look forward to applying this knowledge in the future.

It a very nice course, concise and informative. This course is very useful to integrate the ecological principles with the hydraulic engineering to design the future coast line and the inland flood defense systems.it is innovative way of designing and building in engineering globe.Engineers should learn the principles to preserve the nature as well as ensure the safety of people using ecological and engineering tools by creating balance. I would highly recommend this course to learn new innovation, particularly to engineers.
