New Degree Program Request:
Proposal for MS in Civil Engineering– Coastal and Port Engineering Major
Summary of the Changes:
We propose a new major of
Coastal and Port Engineering within the existing Master of Science in Civil
Engineering degree. The emphases will be on engineering design in coastal and
port areas, coastal processes, coastal and estuarine science, mitigation of
coastal disasters, coastal water resources and green energy. This will be a 30
credit hour program.
Dean Tumeo certifies that no new resources will be required to
implement the proposed new major. There will be NO reallocation of funds
necessary to initiate this program because UNF has already provided CCEC the
funding for the additional faculty needed.
The faculty involved (Dr. Resio, Dr. Bacopoulos and Dr. Dally) have all
been hired and are already teaching in the Civil Engineering Program. In addition, the program developed is a
repackaging of courses that have been developed and taught as part of the
existing Civil Engineering Master degree.
The budget includes on adjunct (Dr. Christopher Bender) who has taught
select courses in the Civil Engineering Program during the past two years. The expense for this adjunct is already
included in the College’s adjunct budget and therefore does not require
