This master course is designed to foster the development of personnel specialized in administering various types of ocean environment and coastal engineering projects, allowing foreign government officers to acquire the ability to comply with international treaties, including the London Protocol, and giving them the knowledge and technology they need to engage in coastal environment management, ocean pollution prevention, and the control of coastal structures and port facilities.
President Kim said, “I am looking forward to the talented students of the London Protocol Engineering Master program acting as a bridge to Korea, promoting international cooperation, and making significant contributions to raising Korea’s status within the London Protocol.”
