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:
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.
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:
