Course Description

The goal of the course is to teach the students how to use professional software for the simulation and prediction of groundwater flow and pollutant transport, such that they are able to analyse and solve any groundwater problem that they would encounter in their professional career. In addition, the students should be able to transform the field data into model inputs, estimate or approximate missing data, select the appropriate modelling tools, set up a numerical model, select appropriate boundary conditions, solve problems numerically, analyze convergence and stability criteria, interpret modelling results in the correct way, and present results by a professional report and oral presentation.


The course is intended to enable the student to:

  • Select and apply different software tools for the solution of groundwater problems
  • Collect and process groundwater field data
