Technology Projects > Coastal and Environmental Engineering > Introduction


The group functions with a mandate to develop application-oriented technology in ocean (Coastal & Environmental) related areas. The goals of the group are to promote programs consistent with the overall development perspective of the country in the infrastructure sector thereby contributing to the nation building exercise

The group's expertise and specialized facilities in scientific and technological fields cater to specific sponsored research and industrial sector projects by providing technical support and time-bound result-oriented research.

Coastal and Environmental Engineering (CEE) program aims to bring the state of the art technology in coastal infrastructure development through field observation, numerical modeling and engineering application. Coastal protection is one of the main focus area of the group. The group has successfullydemonstrated segmented submerged breakwaters made of sand filled geosynthetic tubes at Kadalur villages in Tamil Nadu for the first time in the open coastal waters of India.
