Coastal & Oceanographic Engineering Research

The Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering program is composed of faculty with a wide range of research interests in coastal physical processes. Faculty teach a variety of graduate courses while implementing state-of-the-art pedagogic methods. Courses include Wave Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Physical Oceanography, Data Analysis and Numerical Models, among others. The Faculty's research is recognized internationally for its prominence and for its impact in understanding physical processes associated with sediment transport in beaches, estuaries and lakes; wave transformations over sandy and muddy bottoms; bridge scouring; inlet morphodynamics and wave-current interactions; estuarine and coastal physics; storm surge and inundation; and salt intrusion into estuaries and groundwater aquifers. The Faculty's research is funded by Federal and State agencies, as well as by industrial sponsors. Research trains students to become professionals in academic institutions, government agencies, non-government organizations, or industry consulting.
