The coastal zone is widely recognised as important at national, European and global levels. Skilled graduates who can understand environmental issues and apply this to engineering problems are in high demand. Designed with your future career in mind, this course will enable you to acquire core knowledge of environmental coastal engineering, develop key skills such as the use of numerical models and Environmental Impact Assessment, understand the design of coastal structures, and enable you to apply this knowledge to address real problems in the coastal zone. This unique one-year course is taught jointly by Engineering and the Environment and Ocean and Earth Science, with extensive input from industry.
Introductory and core modules: Modelling Coastal Processes; Coastal Flood Defence; Coastal Morphodynamics; Coastal Sediment Dynamics, Environmental Impact Assessment; GIS; Understanding Civil Engineering (Hydraulics) (for nonengineers); Introduction to Marine Geology (for engineers); Key Skills and Applied Coastal Oceanography; Coastal and Maritime Engineering and Energy
