The programme aims to cultivate students with skills to work in specialized technical fields, to learn the principles and techniques of coastal environmental protection, as well as simulation and assessment techniques for threatening coastal hazards. Simultaneously, the programme will also provide training for students on their research skills, so as to serve students with various development path.

The curriculum of this programme is designed to cover a variety of marine research areas, which include the courses “Coastal Fluid Mechanics and Storm Surge” for the research area of Physical Ocean, “Marine Ecology” and “Sediment Transport and Erosion” for the research area of Coastal Engineering, “Coastal Pollution: Sources, Fate and Effects of Pollutants” for the research area of Coastal Environment Science.

The aim of this programme is to strengthen students with the knowledge and skills of coastal zone environmental protection and disaster simulation and assessment through projects or internships, and to cultivate talents in related fields.
