As one ASCE’s eight Institutes, COPRI focuses on specific civil engineering specialties by centering on the technical, educational, scientific and professional issues unique to coastal, ocean, ports, waterways, wetlands and riverine environments. We strive to advance and disseminate scientific and engineering knowledge to our diverse membership.

COPRI serves as a multidisciplinary and international leader for improving knowledge, education, development and the practice of civil engineering and other professional disciplines in the coastal, ocean, port, waterways, riverine and wetlands environments. We strive to provide our members with relevant services to help further their careers.  From technical committees and specialty conferences, to field research and partnerships with other organizations, COPRI aims to meet the needs and interests of our more than 3,980 members. 

COPRI provides members the opportunity to change the face of the industry from actively developing policy change to developing standards and technically sound programs such as specialty conferences and workshops.
