For the past almost 30 years, engineers at port authorities, consulting firms have no educational background in wave mechanics, wave/current forces on marine structures, or mooring/berthing loads onto structures. And with very few universities teaching this material, the only way it’s usually learned is by working in the field. These 5 ‐ 6 modules (none in parallel) provide the background in marine/port engineering, and the prospective student will have an appreciation of the 3 issues and problems associated with this field. At the very least, the student will know what questions to ask and the background/references provided in these modules are the basis for port engineering.
Learning outcomes are assessed through multiple tests, interactive knowledge checks, and case studies, as well as weekly forum participation throughout the course.
