There is a growing need, in industry, government and research, for coastal engineers with a broad understanding of environmental, engineering and oceanographic issues in the coastal zone, such as the rapidly growing populations and economies of coastal areas, and threats like sea-level rise and climate change.
This programme is built around relevant parts of engineering, oceanography and GIS applications, with an emphasis on existing coastal problems.
We have strong links with industry and local authorities responsible for coastal engineering and management.
Careers: Academia; coastal engineering consultancy;Environment Agency; maritime local authorities
Introductory modules: Introduction to civil engineering (for non-engineers); Introduction to marine geology (for engineers)
Core modules: Applied sediment dynamics; Coastal and flood defence; Coastal morphodynamics; Coastal sediment dynamics; Environmental audit and risk assessment; GIS for coastal engineering; Key skills and applied oceanography; Coastal and maritime energy; Modelling in environmental and earth system science
Assessment: Examination, coursework assignments, dissertation
Upper second-class honours degree or equivalent in civil engineering, oceanography, geography, geology, environmental or physical sciences. Applicants with lower qualifications, but with relevant experience and a high degree of numeracy, are encouraged to apply
