This course presents a review of sustainable engineering related to the ocean environment. Sustainable shore protection designs will be investigated such as living shorelines and sills, beach nourishment, and other sustainable methods in order to adapt to coastal hazards such as hurricanes, tsunamis, and sea level rise. Sustainable energy such as coastal wind energy, wave energy, tidal energy, and other sustainable energy sources will be also investigated as alternative energy designs. The importance of sustainable food production will be discussed and aquaculture system designs such as ocean aquaculture, shellfish aquaculture, and other sustainable food production will be studied.
