Hec-RAS and ArcGIS for Hydrologic Engineering
What you'll learn
- Perform hydraulic studies of natural or artificial channels.
- Evaluate areas of flooding of rivers and streams.
- Plan the territory based on areas of flooding or hydraulic public domain.
- Perform simulations of channels or hydraulic structures.
- Incorporate the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to facilitate and improve hydraulic studies.
- No previous technical or software knowledge is required, although it may facilitate the rapid development of the course having previously used ArcGIS or another GIS.
- Before starting, you must have ArcGIS 10 installed, and the Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst extensions activated.
- Discipline and eager to learn.
This practical course starts from scratch and is designed step by step, with practical exercises, which allow you to know the essential fundamentals in the management of Hec-RAS.
With Hec-RAS you will have the ability to conduct flood studies and determine flood areas, integrating it with urban planning and land planning.
Compared to other courses that focus solely on explaining technical knowledge, this course also gives a detailed and simple description of all the steps to follow from when we want to start a flood study until its final presentation, making use of the experience accumulated after More than 10 years conducting such studies for administrations, private promoters or research projects.

Welcome to our Academy platform, your ultimate destination for online courses covering a wide range of subjects, including GIS, CAD, BIM and Digital Twins applied to the land development environment. We are committed to providing comprehensive education and empowering individuals to excel in various domains related to infrastructures. Whether you are a student, a professional seeking to expand your knowledge, or an enthusiast passionate about these subjects, our platform offers a diverse selection of courses tailored to meet your specific needs.
At our Academy, we recognize the significance of these disciplines in the infrastructures life cycle, from initial design to project completion. To ensure the highest quality of education, we have collaborated with renowned industry expert Golgi Alvarez and assembled a team of AulaGEO Academy experts to create, adapt to English and/or Spanish languages and curate cutting-edge courses.
Architecture – Engineering – Construction – Operation (AECO) is a harmonious blend of creativity and technical expertise. Our AECO courses encompass a broad range of topics, from Civil design principles to sustainable construction practices. You will gain proficiency in conceptualizing and developing designs that fulfill aesthetic, functional, structural and regulatory requirements. Our instructors, including renowned expert Golgi Alvarez, will guide you through the design process, helping you refine your visualization and communication skills. Furthermore, you will acquire a solid foundation in structural analysis and design, ensuring the safety and stability of your land development creations.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolutionized the way we collect, analyze, and visualize spatial data. Our GIS courses explore the power of GIS technology for mapping, spatial analysis, and data management. Using software like ArcGIS Pro and QGIS you will gain insights into interpreting and manipulating geospatial data, designing interactive maps, conducting spatial queries, and leveraging GIS for various applications, including land management, environmental analysis, and urban planning. Our GIS courses provide a competitive advantage in fields that rely on spatial data analysis and informed decision-making.
Civil Engineering plays a pivotal role in the design and construction of infrastructure. Our engineering courses cover a broad spectrum of topics, including structural engineering, transportation systems, and urban design. Using software like AutoDesk Civil3D and Bentley OpenRoads you will learn the principles and techniques required to design, construct, and maintain buildings, bridges, roads, and more. Our experienced instructors bring their industry expertise to the virtual classroom, providing valuable insights
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the backbone of modern design processes, enabling precise and efficient creation of 2D and 3D models. Our CAD courses cover a wide array of software applications, including AutoCAD, Microstation, and CREO Parametric. From fundamental concepts to advanced techniques, you will acquire the skills necessary to create, modify, and analyze complex designs, ensuring accuracy and optimizing workflows. Our courses cater to beginners seeking a solid foundation as well as experienced professionals aiming to enhance their expertise.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has transformed the architecture, engineering, and construction industries by facilitating collaborative and data-driven project management. Our BIM courses delve into the principles, workflows, and software tools utilized in BIM, such as Revit and SYNCHRO. You will learn to create intelligent 3D models that encompass architectural, structural, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) systems. Additionally, you will discover techniques for accurate quantity extraction, clash detection, and generating construction documents. Mastery of BIM equips you to contribute effectively to multidisciplinary project teams and streamline project delivery.
ARTS & DEVELOPMENT
Additionally, as part of our social responsibility, some of our courses have been made available to development projects in certain countries. This has allowed us to benefit communities and replicate our methodology, leading to the creation of new courses in response to demand in areas such as graphic design, art, and social disciplines.
