Port & Coastal Engineering
Alaska’s seaports and coastal harbors are primary centers of commerce and vital links to interior communities and to valuable natural resources. The scenic grandeur of the State's shores draws visitors from around the globe. Coastal resources must be shepherded by sophisticated means to assure their sustainability. Specialized training is necessary to design, build and operate coastal works in cold regions and to evaluate their effects on land and marine environments.
The specialized courses listed below can be applied to either undergraduate or graduate degrees in Geomatics and Engineering at UAA. Student participation in faculty-led research in these topic areas is often possible.
