  • Overview
  • Syllabus
  • Instructor


Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Calculate wave forces on vertical walls and predict wave properties.
  • Understanding shore protection strategy and recognizing water process and its effect on the shore zone. 
  • Design main marine structures geometrically and structurally.
  • Assisting field cases in the light of structure wave and current interaction.

Coastal engineering deals with the stability of coastal zone and structures within this zone. This course covers the water processes and its effect on civil structure stability in the coastal zone. The climate change phenomena added more difficulty when studying and designing shore protection and marine structures.

This course focuses on problem-solving, field cases, and the design procedure of stable structures to protect near-shore properties.

Course Outline

  • Waves, Current, Tidal range, and water level.
  • The strategy of shore protection and marine structures.
  • Structural design of Breakwaters.
  • Methods of supporting community and houses near the lakes. 
  • Field case and real problem-solving.

Who Should Attend
Civil engineers and architects • Real estate representatives • Contractors and consulting engineers • Coastal and marine authorities.

Special Features & Requirements
The course includes many problem-solving and field cases. So previous experience in coastal and marine engineering may not be required. Civil engineering background may be preferred, however, non-engineers can adequately benefit from the course.
