Coastal Engineering is an engineering branch that examines the physical processes and human interaction with these processes in coastal/marine areas.
Coastal Engineering is the application of Physical and Engineering Sciences for development, design, conservation, and management studies in coastal/marine areas.
Although the starting point was inspired by the needs of marine protection and marine use, it now adopts the principles of sustainable development, integrated watershed/coastal/marine area management and ecosystem-based management.
In the Coastal Engineering Program (COE) of DEU-IMST, experts “with knowledge and skill of fundamental concepts about coastal/marine processes, design, and construction of coastal/marine structures; and satisfying the abilities to have active roles in planning, construction and management of coastal/marine structures” are being graduated.
The COE program provides multidisciplinary research opportunities with other Marine Technology and Marine Sciences programs of the Institute.
Hydrodynamics of coastal/marine areas
Coastal/marine structure design and applications
Sediment transport and coastal morphology
Natural disasters (tsunami, storm surge, floods, etc.) and climate change
Marine renewable energy (wind, current, wave)
Integrated coastal, marine and watershed management
