Course content

The Erasmus Mundus MSc Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management (CoMEM) is a two-year, English-taught international masters programme offered by a consortium of five European universities: Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway; Polytechnic University of Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain; Technical University of Delft, Netherlands; City University London, UK; and University of Southampton, UK. Students study in two or three different countries depending on their individual track of study. The programme covers how to prepare coastal areas in the event of sea-level rise and the study of how marine tides can contribute to renewable energy.

There are five specialist tracks:
1) Arctic Marine Coastal Engineering;
2) Marine Operations and Management;
3) Environment and Management;
4) Coastal Engineering;
5) Engineering and Environment.
Students on tracks 3, 4 and 5 attend the University of Southampton.
