The CCE path focuses on the modeling, simulation and measurements of waves and their impact on the coast in the context of coastal risks. Topics extensively studied include, wave mechanics,wave modeling, waves interactions with structures.

A specific focus is put on numerical methods and open source computational tools commonly used in this field including :

Telemac 2D, Artemis, OPENFOAM, BOSZ (Boussinesq wave model), Cast3M (finite element structure model).

This track belongs to the international master’s degree in Physics and Simulation in Civil Engineering which offers multidisciplinary key courses to achieve an advanced specialist level in the aforementioned fields.

It is suited for students planning both an academic or an industrial career and provides the theoretical basis and the practical expertise required to pursue in research or R&D structures or companies in the field of coastal engineering and coastal risks.

The master is fully taught in English and is hosted at ISA BTP Engineering School in the French Basque coast area (Anglet, France).
