Discover the power of hydrological modelling in this 3-part course, tailored to both beginners and intermediate users.

Placing a strong emphasis on practical application and guiding you through the intricate process of constructing a functional hydrological model, you'll learn to transform raw rainfall and terrain data into a dynamic model using HEC-HMS, all while working with real-world catchments as your reference.

Through hands-on instruction and real-world examples, you'll gain the skills and confidence to navigate HEC-HMS effectively, making this course an essential stepping stone for anyone interested in hydrological modelling and catchment management.
