 Courses for Summer 2014

CGN 6933:  Special Topics - Risk Assessment
Instructor:  Dr. Don Resio
This course will focus on methods for understanding and quantifying risks.  It will include 1) an introduction to risk analysis and its applications and the vocabulary of risk assessment in modern applications, 2) a review of fundamental engineering statistics needed for risk assessment; 3) the development of tools for quantifying risk assessment, 4) examples of applications of risk analysis in engineering;  5) modern concepts of risk management and their continued evolution in engineering and planning, 6) concepts for improved risk communication, including uncertainty, and 7) the ability to incorporate critical thinking into risk assessment. 
Prerequisite:  Graduate Standing



Courses for Fall 2014

 CGN 4931/CWR 5824:  Coastal & Estuarine Hydrodynamics

Instructor:  Dr. Peter Bacopoulos
Linear wave theory is introduced at the beginning of the course. The remainder of the course stresses nearshore wave processes, the physics of longwave hydrodynamics, and estuarine processes. The course culminates with an application of coastal and estuarine hydrodynamics.
Prerequisite:  CWR 3201 and MAP 2302


CWR 5531:  Numerical Modeling of Coastal Systems
Instructor:  Dr. Peter Bacopoulos
This course covers fundamentals of numerical methods and development of programming techniques to solve problems in coastal, civil and environmental engineering. Thie course requires substantial computer use via numerical codes in languages such as Matlab and FORTRAN. Standard topics, including Taylor series, solving systems of equations with direct and indirect methods, interpolation, root finding, numerical differentiation, finite difference approximations, time stepping methods and numerical integration, are treated in a context-based approach involving applications drawn from coastal, civil and environmental engineering. This course will provide the requisite material for courses and research in numerical modeling, field observation, and engineering and design of coasts and ports.
Prerequisite:  CWR 3201 and MAP 2302


MAN 6726:  Advanced Strategic Managment
Instructor:  Dr. Steven Williamson
Advanced Strategic Management (ASM) is the Capstone course of the MBA program. This course requires the student to assimilate and integrate the knowledge acquired from the functional disciplines through application utilizing a strategic framework. Further, students utilize various models and theories of firm structure and performance to understand how to evaluate, allocate, and deploy the various resources that an enterprise controls in order to develop and achieve integrated strategic objectives.
Prerequisite:  Students must be in their last semester of graduate work, have an overall graduate GPA of 3.0 or better on their degree evaluation courses and have attained permission to register from a graduate advisor.
