Joint Geothermal Course 2013 – Geothermal Reservoir Modeling Course


Following the success of running several courses in the previous years, Gadjah Mada University and The University of Auckland will soon run  Joint Geothermal Course on Geothermal Reservoir Modeling that will be conducted on 1 – 5 July 2013. The instructors are geothermal experts from Gadjah Mada University and The University of Auckland New Zealand. The course programs include exercises, discussions and attending a cultural evening in Yogyakarta.

Complete lecture notes and sets of stationary/workshop kits will be provided however, the participants are advised to bring their own laptop. Each successful participant will receive a Certificate of Attendance. Award will be given to the best participant of each course. A cultural evening (sponsored by Gadjah Mada University) will be organized in a beautiful suburb of Yogyakarta to introduce the culture of Java and to provide a relaxing social function and networking. The courses are organized by The Geothermal Research Center, Faculty of Engineering and will be run at the Faculty of Engineering Campus, Jalan Grafika 2, Yogyakarta. We warmly invite geothermal geoscientists and engineers of Indonesia and the neighboring countries to enroll into these course programs as soon as possible due to limitation of seats. The course and lecture notes will be given in English.
