Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The course integrates use of computer technologies with advances in numerical mathematics and water sciences. These disciplines have reached a common platform in hydroinformatics to create excellent tools for decision-making in the field of water management and environmental control.

Course contents:
Information Systems. Analysis of the processes of the hydrological cycle. Topology of catchment, river network and water management systems. Mathematical and numerical models. Principles and sequence of steps in creating numerical and mathematical models. Modeling system. The basics of computational hydraulics. Governing equations of hydraulic processes, numerical and graphical methods of solution. Description and use of selected software tools in water management.
