Abstract:

This article discusses the complex task of managing coastal projects, focusing specifically on those projects involving design and construction; management of projects that go beyond policy and analysis. Coastal design and decision-making are described and the tasks involved in managing coastal projects are defined. The article then concludes that neither coastal engineers nor coastal managers are educated for the contemporary tasks involved in managing coastal projects that involve design and construction. Possible opportunities to make changes in the practice and curricula of both coastal engineering and management are investigated, so that those complex projects can be managed adequately in the future.
