About Water Supply Network Design and Analysis

A Certificate Program in Water Supply Network Design and Analysis is the need of the hour.  Most of the Indian towns and cities are suffering from the problem of inadequate water supply mainly due to improper water distribution network design and maintenance. The details of existing networks are not available with urban local bodies leading to poor service and maintenance. Though being of utmost importance the topic of water distribution network design and analysis is neglected most of the time in engineering education. There is an urgent need to address this skill gap and the present course is designed to impart the required skill in the simplest manner to render competent personals that can efficiently use the latest open-source tools available to effectively map, design, and analyze water distribution networks.
