The development of knowledge and skills that might aid graduates in identifying ecological solutions that are ecologically benign may be a focus of a coastal engineering degree. Students may learn how to solve current coastal conundrums while studying topics like sea level rise and how climatic changes affect marine habitats. The study, design, building, and administration of systems that function in the coastal environment are all handled through the application of fundamental engineering concepts, or coastal engineering. It is a hybrid technological field that applies methods from many engineering specialties. Beach protection and nourishment, coastal structures, erosion, nearshore circulation, marine renewable energy (wind, wave, and tide), impacts of natural hazards on coastal infrastructure, development of water resources, instrumentation for coastal and offshore measurements, marine dredging and dredged material placement, ports, and harbors, and transport of suspended and dissolved constituents are typical application areas for coastal engineering. There are job openings in the business sector, defense contractors, consultancy firms, and governmental organizations. In addition to being allowed to take part in the university's cooperative education program, students are encouraged to seek out summer internships. In the classroom and in our laboratories, which are located in the civil engineering laboratory building, students gain practical experience.
