Effective drainage management is critical to mitigate the devastating economic and social impacts of flooding. The World Bank reports floods causing an average of $40 billion in damages and over 100,000 fatalities annually worldwide. As urbanization continues to increase and climate change exacerbates the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, effective drainage and stormwater management has become a crucial aspect of sustainable and resilient infrastructure. A well-designed drainage system can safeguard communities, ensure sustainability, preserve the environment, and protect properties from the catastrophic effects of flooding.
This program will empower you with comprehensive understanding of how to build robust drainage designs by understanding the interconnected principles of urban water management, urban drainage systems, stormwater management, and flood risk management. You will discover how integrating these systems can prevent flooding by reducing stormwater runoff and managing it effectively. The program will also explore the benefits of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) like enhancing biodiversity, improving water quality, and creating recreational green spaces. Through a comprehensive approach that includes land-use planning, engineering design, community engagement, and emergency management, you will learn effective flood risk management strategies. By completing the program, you will have the necessary knowledge and tools to address the challenges posed by flooding and mitigate its impact on people, infrastructure, and the environment.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will earn the coveted Certification in Advanced Drainage Engineering, Stormwater Design and Flood Risk Management. This certification will elevate your professional credentials and showcase your mastery of the essential principles in drainage engineering and design, including knowledge of the latest industry practices, tools, and technologies. This industry-recognized certification holds lifelong validity, offering a testament to your expertise and commitment to excellence in the infrastructure industry.

Did you know that a well-designed and comprehensive drainage system can help cities prevent massive flood risk? The Rotterdam Climate Proof program exemplifies the power of drainage engineering and design in mitigating flood risk and protecting communities from the impacts of climate change. With innovative stormwater runoff and flood risk management techniques, the program has achieved a remarkable 20% reduction in flood risk for the city. Additionally, flood damage has been reduced by a staggering 75%, resulting in an estimated cost savings of €200 million in avoided damages. These impressive results highlight the critical importance of a solid drainage engineering and design to build resilient and sustainable communities.
Led by Dr. Babak Bozorgy, internationally-recognized sustainable drainage design and stormwater management expert, this program will equip you with the essential knowledge of drainage engineering and develop sound engineering judgment to solve drainage design problems. You will gain insights into applying engineering and design concepts to your drainage design framework, including hydrology, open and closed channel design, erosion control, and stormwater management. This program will provide you with the skills and techniques to increase urban areas' resilience to flooding and other climate-related hazards through better urban design, planning, and infrastructure. You will also gain a holistic understanding of stormwater management and flood control techniques, with a focus on promoting the use of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS). Additionally, the program covers flood risk management plan development, identifying appropriate flood risk mitigation measures, and utilizing state-of-the-art information and technologies to increase drainage system efficiency under changing climate and urbanization.
