Project Name:

PhD in Engineering (Coastal Engineering and Computational Engineering) at an HBCU

Other Research Participants/Partners:

U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, University of North Florida and Texas A&M at Galveston

Project Description:

This project focuses on strengthening the establishment and institutionalization of the PhD in Engineering (Coastal Engineering and Computational Engineering concentrations) accomplished during years 1 to 3 of this CRC education project. A steady output of MS and PhD Engineering degree graduates with Coastal Engineering or Computational Engineering concentrations focused on coastal natural disasters is projected to be established and to help increase workforce diversity in the greater Homeland Security enterprise.
