The CCCE track focuses on the modeling and simulation of coastal engineering related processes. Topics extensively studied include, wave modeling, waves interactions with structures, soil and structure complex behavior. A specific focus is put on numerical methods and open source computational tools commonly used in this field including: Telemac 2D, Artemis, OpenFOAM, BOSZ (Boussinesq wave model), XBEACH, Cast3M (finite element structure model).
This track belongs to the international master’s degree in Physics and Simulation in Civil Engineering which offers multidisciplinary key courses to achieve an advanced specialist level in the aforementioned fields. It is suited for students planning both an academic or an industrial career and provides the theoretical basis and the practical expertise required to pursue in research or R&D structures or companies.
The master is fully taught in English and is hosted at ISA BTP Engineering School in the French Basque coast area (Anglet, France).
The program is carried out in close collaboration with SIAME and LFCR research laboratories where numerical and experimental practical tutorial will be performed. Students will also benefit from the global research environment and administrative support of the University Pau & Pays Adour, the E2S I-site program and the research federation IPRA.
- Prepare students at an advanced specialized level to meet present and future challenges in coastal engineering,
- Develop engineering research skills to engage in quality and successful research,
- Prepare students for leading positions in industry and government Research and Development departments.
Student Learning Outcomes
