MSc in Coastal and River Engineering

Master of Science in Coastal and River Engineering (CRE) programme is a 2-year full time regular postgraduate programme. Graduates from this programme will be able to develop their careers as River Engineer, Coastal Engineer, Structural Engineer, and Project Manager in the relevant discipline. In their challenging career, they will need to design, plan, and manage the construction, installation, operation, and maintenance of river and coastal infrastructures and systems.

The programme is divided into 4 semesters of six months each (2 semesters each year). The total credit hour of this programme is 48 including 18 credit hours for the thesis. Besides regular courses, workshops, seminars, guest lectures on contemporary issues are arranged frequently for the students. The programme also includes fieldwork during the 2nd semester. The duration of each semester is 26 weeks. Each semester is distributed as follows:

  1. Classes                                                               15 weeks
  2. Mid Term Examinations                                       02 weeks
  3. Preparatory Leave                                               02 weeks
  4. Final Examination                                                03 weeks
  5. Recess                                                                04 weeks

In the first year, students will study courses on river engineering, fluids, materials, structures, planning, management, climate change, etc. In the final year, students will specialize in both the River and Coastal Engineering themes, such as riverbank structures, modelling, hydrodynamics, statistical analysis, maritime rules and regulation. Students will also conduct a thesis aimed at solving engineering challenges for the industry.

Programme Outcome

In general, the programme will enable its graduates to engineer shallow water coastal structures ports, and harbours, as well as mastering the design and building procedure of different types of river training work-related structures. On completion of the programme, graduates will be able to:

  1. Apply knowledge of science, and engineering mathematics in the field of River and Harbour Engineering
  2. Formulate engineering problems and develop practical solutions
  3. Interpret the results of engineering experiments appropriate for Coastal and River Engineering
  4. Design and analyze products and processes applicable to Coastal and River Engineering
  5. Work effectively in teams and provide leadership
  6. Understand the impact of engineering decisions in a global/societal/environmental context
  7. Understand the managerial, professional, and ethical responsibility
  8. Recognize the need to engage in lifelong learning
  9. Acquire a broad education necessary to contribute effectively beyond their professional careers
  10. Effectively communicate orally, graphically, and in writing.
  11. Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practices
