Coastal Engineering Short Course
Register now to attend a Coastal Engineering Short Course run by UNSW Sydney's Water Research Laboratory over the two days prior to the 2019 Coasts & Ports Conference in Hobart.
This is the ideal course for:
- Graduate or recently recruited coastal and maritime engineers;
- Professionals/researchers from other disciplines working in the coastal zone, such as planners or other engineering practitioners;
- Officers from all levels of government involved in regulating our coasts;
- Project managers engaging coastal engineering sub-contractors.
The short course will cover the following:
- An overview of coastal engineering fundamentals;
- Beach morphology and coastal hazards;
- Current practice for coastal structures;
- New technologies and state of the art professional practice;
- Physical and numerical modelling; and
- Practical case studies.
Sessions will be run by industry practitioners and experts including staff from WRL and other organisations:
- James Carley
- Matt Blacka
- Associate Professor Ron Cox
- Dr Mitchell Harley
- Dr Tom Shand (Tonkin + Taylor / University of Auckland, NZ)
- Ian Coghlan (Course Coordinator)
- Additional presenters to be confirmed
Cost: $1,210 (incl. GST)
What the 2017 delegates had to say about the previous short course:
“This course was enlightening! I was fascinated with each session. Great introduction for coastal engineering topics. Presentations were smooth and well-practised.”
“Presenters knew their stuff and were practitioners in this space".
“Good wide coverage but with the ability to ask specific detailed questions. Very clear definition of problems I’m currently involved with".
“I learned the requirements of coastal engineering design and a lot of real problems that engineers face in the design".
“Very enjoyable course. Good variety".
