School of Civil Engineering

The Coastal and Hydraulic Engineering group teaches undergraduate and Masters courses covering both fundamental processes and the latest research in water, wind and coastal engineering.

Research facilities include a wide range of hydraulic flumes, wave flumes, a wind tunnel and a national Coastal Engineering Research Field Station at the Nerang River mouth. We are a world leader in sediment transport processes, nearshore hydrodynamics and statistical modelling of beach processes. Our students undertake diverse and challenging laboratory and field projects aimed at enhancing the safety and resilience of communities along the coastline of Australia and the Pacific Islands.
