Teaching

The Institute of Geo-Hydroinformatics utilizes novel tools to integrate state-of-the-art research with teaching. We place a particular focus on developing and extending students' research skills and problem solving capabilities. We believe this will help our students to be ready for addressing a wide range of concerning issues around the word including but not limited to land, water, climate and energy related challenges. Our courses are multidisciplinary and cover a wide range of fundamental, theoretical, modelling (with in-house or commercial software) and experimental topics. The list of the active courses in our institute is listed below:
