IAHR STUDENT CHAPTERS

IAHR is keen to support the education and professional development of future engineers and scientists in the hydraulic community. Through IAHR Student Chapters, students gather to share experiences, do special projects and take part in IAHR activities such as the biennial congress, thereby taking the opportunity to learn from IAHR members and create a useful network for their future careers.

Student Chapter activities include:

• Research seminars, discussions or workshops
• Field trips to visit local hydraulic works
• Group research projects
• Group trips to IAHR symposia, workshops and congresses
• Informal collaborative activities with neighboring Student Chapters
• Fundraising efforts to garner support for member participation in IAHR Congresses and other forums
• Application to IAHR for hosting an IAHR Lectureship
