The June 17th course for graduate and PhD students will combine classroom instruction, team project-based learning, and field experiential learning at coastal projects in the Boston area, all taught by international experts in these fields.
Topics will include:
technical inputs and data collection for planning and design
short-term (storms and seismically-induced waves) and long-term (sea level rise) events
planning and land-use using natural, social, economic, and cultural considerations
nature-based, engineered and hybrid infrastructure solutions
coastal zone management (policy and zoning) in the U.S. and international settings
