UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
This is a capstone coastal engineering unit that requires broad background knowledge about coastal processes, fluid mechanics, and numerical modelling. Students are also expected to be proficient in basic engineering problem solving and design. It is expected that students would normally have completed ERTH3001 - Coastal and Fluvial Hydrodynamics prior to enrolling in this unit.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
analyse and interpret wave statistics to quantitatively describe past hydraulic behaviour of the coastal ocean and specify design wave characteristics
assess and predict morphological change in coastal and estuarine environments using appropriate analysis and modelling tools
apply industry-standard numerical modelling software to investigate complex hydrodynamics in estuarine and coastal environments and evaluate and interpret the results
derive and communicate appropriate solutions to coastal engineering problems by using a risk-based, multidisciplinary systems approach to integrate technical knowledge with other contextual factors
