I would like to compile a list of universities that are using WEAP in a course on water resources. If you are a student in a university course that is using WEAP (now or within the past year), or a professor teaching a class in which WEAP is used, please post a reply on the WEAP Forum to this message (see link below: "View thread or reply").

Please include the course title, the department and university name, and whether it is an undergraduate or graduate course. If the department has a web site, please include the web address.

You can see the current list here: http://www.weap21.org/Courses

Thank you!

We used WEAP at a course last year 2010.
Name of the course: Integrated Watershed Management
University: El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (Mexico)
El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (www.ecosur.mx) is a Higher Education and Research Centre financed by the National Science and Technology Council. In this case we gave the course in Chiapas, Mexico.
We had three proffesors Salvador Hernández, Juan Suarez, and myself.
This was a graduate course given to M Sc students.

Hope this is of help.

Hi Jack,
Thank you very much for your kind support.
We are in the Water and Environment Center (WEC) at Sana’ university have been using WEAP for academic purposes in the Master program of IWRM courses:
- Integrated watershed management
- Integrated water shin management
- Hydrology and water management

I Have been using WEAP in my graduate student's thesis.

within 4 years the WEC’s staffs under supervision of Dr. Abdulla Noaman have implemented the following studies using WEAP model, the studies are:
1- Integrated watershed management for the Sana’a basin using WEAP
2- Adaptation for water scarcity for the Yemen’s vulnerability community using WEAP
3- Climate change adaptation for water resources and Agriculture in Yemen

Dear Jack Sieber

At the Water and Environment Research and Study Center (WERSC) of the University of Jordan we have a graduate program in Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) which is taught jointly by WERSC and the Institute for Technology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics (ITT) of Cologne University of Applied Sciences in Germany. Over the last four years of the program life, three students have used WEAP in their master's thesis. The titles of the thesis are as follows:

1. OPTIMUM WATER ALLOCATION IN AZRAQ BASIN USING WEAP
SYSTEM, by Ali Hayajneh

2. Reallocation of Irrigation Water in the Jordan Valley by Rasha Sharqawi,

3. Vulnerability of irrigated agriculture due to climate change in the lower Jordan River Basin by Marc Hearing,

Now at Future University-Sudan, I already introduced the software to my GIS and Remote Sensing Students. They find it user-friendly the manual. Please keep posted for any development and future training in Africa.
