The University of Alberta offers an enriched learning environment in which the theoretical, experimental and computational aspects of fluid dynamics are synthesized.

Participants will attend a comprehensive series of lectures, and will be given hands-on experience performing and analyzing experiments in the Environmental and Industrial Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, as well as running numerical simulations using research-level codes.

Topics will include fluid dynamics fundamentals, industrial and environmental flows, geophysical fluid dynamics, turbulence modelling and computational fluid dynamics. Subjects will be taught at a graduate level.
