Africa Online Summer School

The Africa Online Summer School, from 2-12 October 2022, is organized by the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) Africa Division. It is initiated as a commitment from IAHR to reach and connect with African scholars, young professionals, and institutes; and as a mean to promote collaborations that will create solutions for the water security and climate change challenges and help meet net-zero and sustainability targets. 


The school provides a synthesis of several aspects of hydro-environmental engineering. The main objective of the school is to introduce the main principles of hydro-environmental engineering and their importance and practical applications in Africa. 

Upon completion, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of hydro-environmental engineering and its impact on water infrastructures.
  • Understand the fundamentals and main principles behind each field of hydro-environmental engineering.
  • Be familiar with projects and applications where the hydro-environmental engineering is involved.
  • Identify leading experts in the field of hydro-environmental engineering and be familiar with IAHR.
  • Identify research and engineering streams that African scholars and professionals should focus on and/or explore. 

The course runs form 2-12 October 2022 and is composed of 18 lectures. Two lectures are given each day. In total, the school is composed of 13 hours of lectures (45 minutes for each lecture).
