Marine and coastal

Maritime civil engineering is an extremely broad but specialised discipline within civil engineering. The coast is a highly complex and sensitive environment that is in a constant state of change. Wave, current and even tidal conditions can vary widely along short lengths of coastline and this means that substantial effort is required to define parameters for the design of coastal structures, coastal defences, ports and marinas. Maritime civil engineering encompasses wave and ocean sciences, geomorphology, geology, engineering design and a spectrum of other analytical skills.
