Abstract

The Flood and Coastal Engineering (FACE) programme is providing BSc and MSc degrees for Environment Agency staff and others with an interest in flood and coastal erosion risk management. The programme includes an initial 2-year Foundation degree. FACE is sponsored by the Environment Agency and is being implemented by Brunel University and HR Wallingford. The presentation will provide a summary of the main areas of study covered by the degree courses. In addition, some specific learning points covered in the FACE programme will be described to provide an insight into the courses and their importance for flood and coastal erosion risk management. It is intended that the learning points will be of general interest to conference participants and will be based on site visits and practical exercises undertaken by students. The learning points will include problems related to flood water level and flow data and how they can be identified and corrected, a brief summary of how flood probability and flood risk maps are derived and the meaning of the information presented, and roles and responsibilities in flood resilience.
