The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences is recognised as one of the best in Europe, with a particularly important role for the Department of Hydraulic Engineering. This department encompasses the Sections Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Engineering. Both have gained over the years an internationally established reputation, in fluid dynamics in general, in coastal dynamics, in the fields of coastal sediment transport, morphology, wind waves, coastal currents. Mathematical, numerical modelling and experimental validation of these processes is at the forefront internationally, while recently the additional focus is on the development of field expertise.
