Registrations are now open for the first HEC-RAS course in Germany, which will be held in Munich on Monday 24 September and Tuesday 25 September 2018.

Learn to build, run, interpret, troubleshoot, and animate flood models from scratch in this intensive, interactive training course.

Why not learn what’s new in HEC-RAS while enjoying Oktoberfest?

The course includes all new European case studies for this HEC-RAS 1D/2D modelling course, including direct rainfall/rain on grid, and urban and coastal flooding, hydraulic structures, GIS interfacing, and terrain manipulation within HEC-RAS.

Presentations will be taught in English to accommodate international attendees; the course instructor, Krey Price, speaks fluent German and can provide individual workshop assistance in German.

Each day’s course runs from 9:00 to 17:00.
