National Committee on Coastal and Ocean Engineering

Experts on engineering for the land and the sea.


What is Coastal and Ocean Engineering?

Coastal and Ocean Engineers work at the interface between land and sea and in the open ocean and are skilled in understanding this dynamic natural environment. This provides the specialised knowledge needed to ensure safe and ecologically sustainable development of our nearshore zone, vital ports and harbours and valuable offshore resources.

Coastal and Ocean Engineers work in either the private sector as consulting engineers, project managers, construction contractors, or in specialised government organisations and university teaching and research.

About the National Committee on Coastal and Ocean Engineering

The National Committee on Coastal and Ocean Engineering (NCCOE) is a specialist sub-committee of the Civil College within Engineers Australia. It represents the professional interests of Australian Coastal and Ocean Engineers.

NCCOE Priorities

Following a period of consultation that included a workshop at Coasts and Ports 2001, the NCCOE established the following priorities:

  • Improve management of the coastal zone through understanding of the coastal environment.
  • Develop strategies for hazards and risks in the coastal zone.
  • Establish a national coastal and near-ocean data program integrating advanced technologies such as satellite, airborne and shore-based remote sensing.

The Committee will continue to work on these research priorities and your comments are always welcome.

Research Priorities for Coastal and Ocean Engineering in Australia

Following discussion at a committee meeting held in Canberra during April, 2014 it was resolved that the ‘Research Priorities for Coastal and Ocean Engineering in Australia’ ought to be reviewed and updated as is found to be necessary. It is envisaged that the review of the priority goals and the document prepared in 2000 could be completed during the latter part of 2014.
