MIKE FLOOD training covered Floodplain modeling using MIKE 11, coupling of Rainfall Runoff and Hydrodynamic models, MIKE 21 bathymetric & grid editor, MIKE 21 Flow Model, Flexible Mess generation, MIKE FLOOD Linkage Option plus much more. Trainees were given hands on exercise to practice the concepts taught during the training session.
During the training, there were healthy discussions to learn more from the trainees. There were instances when other DHI DSP staffs were pressed into service to answer queries which crossed the MIKE FLOOD boundaries. On almost all days, trainees engaged trainers beyond scheduled working hours which showed the confidence everybody had on each other.
“The trainees showed good interest during the course and were friendly so the training course enabled dialogue and interaction amongst the participants” quoted trainer Julie Landrein after the training.
NIH scientist Mr. Pankaj Mani commented “Very experienced training faculties to interact with and gain from the wide horizon of MIKE software for water management… It was really a capacity building training course.”
Senior NIH scientist Biswajit Chakravorty candid was in saying “The trainers selected case examples very carefully to give a feel of the overall package modules and different options by giving hands on exercises. We were totally occupied with the total package of the training schedule and interaction with the trainers. Although we did not get any free moment during five days training schedule, but it was a gaining experience and thus was satisfying.”
