The coastal engineering profession in a country having such a long coastline as Australia requires more trained personnel for solving numerous problems in the coastal zone. The author presents his own opinion about the importance of coastal engineering as a profession and his own attitude to the teaching methodology of coastal engineering; this being the only such subject in the whole BE degree course. In summary, the paper expresses his feelings that undergraduate programs are too limited in offering theoretical knowledge in coastal engineering.
