At this MSc Coastal Engineering offered by University of Plymouth , you'll study core topics in coastal and port engineering, be introduced to numerical modelling techniques, obtain hands-on experience of using state-of-the-art software tools and carry out physical modelling of coastal structures within the COAST laboratory.
Supervised and supported by members of the COAST Engineering Research Group, you will also have the opportunity to undertake a substantial research project focused on an aspect of coastal engineering,
- Equips engineering and science graduates with knowledge and understanding of engineering and coastal processes enabling them to work in this strategically important sector.
- Learn how to quantify the loading effects of waves, tides, surges and manage the influences of climate change: sea level rise and greater storminess.
- Discover how coastal structures - breakwaters, groynes, sea walls - are designed to protect against flooding and coastal erosion.
- Understand how modern ports are designed for the needs of international trade.
For Civil Engineering graduates this programme will help you work as a specialist coastal engineer. For other applicants the course provides you with the skills and knowledge to work alongside engineers within the sector.
Previous graduates work as scientists, researchers or engineers at graduate destinations such as Arup, Mott MacDonald, the Environment Agency, Symprove, HR Wallingford, Mining Searches UK, Canterbury Council and JBA Consulting.
