Master of Offshore and Coastal Engineering

University of Western Australia, The (UWA)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00126G

Offshore and coastal engineering underpin much of global prosperity associated with the Blue Economy, including ocean energy infrastructure, aquaculture industry, shipping and trade activities, and coastal development to support population growth and services in coastal regions. In a world of ever-increasing energy and food demand, the challenges resulting from coastal hazards and climate change, and the need for more environmentally sustainable coastal development, there is increasing demand for offshore and coastal engineering expertise around the world.The Master of Offshore Coastal Engineering provides a pathway for students with undergraduate engineering degrees in areas such as Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering, to undertake advanced study for careers in the offshore and coastal marine sectors.Building on the existing foundational engineering skills and knowledge, The Master of Offshore Coastal Engineering has core units that will ensure graduates have strong experiential learning opportunities whilst building interdisciplinary knowledge and technical skills to analyse, design and develop innovative ocean engineering solutions. These units span across coastal and offshore engineering, ocean engineering and technology, design of coastal structures and advanced design of offshore systems. Elective units provide additional breadth and allow students to gain additional relevant technical capabilities and professional competencies, while research project or capstone units provide specific advanced disciplinary knowledge and skills.
