The subject of Port and Coastal Engineering is in the 1st quarter of the fourth year of the Degree in Civil Engineering.
Its purpose is to enable and train students in the necessary techniques for the project, construction and conservation of maritime works.
The development of the subject is carried out through theoretical classes, practical problems, computer practices and field visits.
The adequate learning process on the part of the student requires a previous solid training in Construction Materials, Geotechnics and Foundations, Materials Resistance, Calculation of Structures, etc., and in basic sciences and techniques, mainly Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Computing.

Basic Transversal Competences
The student is expected to familiarize himself with the maritime environment and its terminology as well as the approach to the tools with which to understand and determine the natural phenomena of the maritime environment.
To provide the student with the necessary information for the design and calculation of maritime works and the different existing regulations on the subject.
To ensure that the student adapts this information and technical knowledge to the maritime installations and the port, its functionality, typologies and design.
On the other hand, the student is also initiated in specific aspects related to coastal engineering such as coastal processes, coastal morphodynamics, port-beach interaction, coastal erosion problems and coastal protection systems.
