Water Infrastructure Asset Management
Short or summer course
Water systems in developing countries are often not equipped to formulate sound maintenance and renewal prioritization plans, backed by state-of-the-art knowledge and tools. This lack of capacity renders the enormous investments in water infrastructure, mobilized by, among other initiatives, the SDGs, to be unsustainable. Water Infrastructure Asset management is an essential component in the maintenance and improvement of services in water systems including utilities, irrigation systems and flood protection and water management infrastructure. It requires the identification of the most critical components of networks, life-cycle cost analysis and minimizing negative impacts of (inevitable) failures. This approach is vitally important for the urban centres of the South, as performance demands increase with the population at a phenomenal rate.
Topics covered include:
• Introduction to asset management
• Risk-based decision making in water infrastructure
• Case studies from around the wold
• Using modelling tools in WIAM
• Optimization and other AI techniques in WIAM
• Simple and effective data gathering, assimilation and management for beginner asset managers
• How to start IAM in an organization
• Field trips to water organizations in the Netherlands

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits. The ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits are equivalent to the workload of full-time student during one academic year.
