Civil engineers are master planners, designers, and managers of the built environment. Coastal engineers are also stewards of our natural resources and the environment. Engineers often find a master's degree is an asset in advanced positions, such as coastal engineering. This applies to the private industry and federal, state, and municipal government agencies.
Our online Master of Science in Civil Engineering focusing on coastal engineering will help you rise to leadership in the field. You'll learn to innovate as you apply technology to the creation and maintenance of infrastructure. In this online master's degree, you'll take an emphasis in coastal engineering. This will include coastal engineering-specific topics like wave theory, soil erosion, and coastal resilience to sea level rise.
