Coastal Engineering and Sciences Certificate Program

The University of New Orleans (UNO) designed the graduate Coastal Engineering And Sciences (CEAS) certificate program to address a growing local need for highly specialized coastal engineers and scientists.

The Gulf Region is a paradigm of natural disaster recovery, with efforts reflected by Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan. As the region protects its communities and ecosystems against future large-scale storms yet eyes industry growth without eroding the existing coastline, coastal engineers and scientists become essential for ensuring all new and existing structures and strategies act to preserve the existing morphology—and don’t inadvertently create a pathway for seawater to flow inland.

UNO’s coursework reflects the region’s unique deltaic coastal environment and its specific challenges, but the concepts presented apply to coastal regions around the US and across the globe. Allowing scientists and engineering professionals to take advantage of UNO’s innovative, career-enhancing program, the graduate certificate in Coastal Sciences and the graduate certificate in Coastal Engineering are offered in hybrid formats, with a choice of on-campus or online classes.
