The aim of this course is to explain the complex dynamics in a delta with a growing port and city. This in connection with the global challenge created by economic growth and the rise in sea level: growing ports and cities in vulnerable deltas.

The course focuses on the technological implementation of possible solutions. There are four theoretical main subjects: Port & City Development, Delta Engineering, Water Systems Engineering and Dredging Technology. The minor is taught in English and also open to international students. Below, the objectives of each main subject are described briefly.

The theoretical part of the course is interspersed by external projects where experience is gained through 'learning by doing', comprising brief (two-weekly) assignments at a port, contractor, engineering firm or water authority. The assignments may involve analysing a certain problem or using supplementary theory to conduct a 'serious game'.
