EDUCATION OF COASTAL ENGINEERS FOR THE 50th ICCE

Henk Jan Verhagen

Abstract


In general the problem in education is that we teach nowadays students the knowledge from five years ago, to be applied in the next 5 to 15 years (I admit, the student of today will have reached his retirement when he will participate in the 50th ICCE, the title is exaggerating reality). When one analyses the developments in the profession, it is clear that teaching present day facts is not very useful. We have to teach approaches, design philosophy, concepts, etc. What the meaning is for education of coastal engineers will be worked out in this paper.
