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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
