Course Description

As ports play a key role in the economy of many countries, in most cases, the damage or deformations, even though they are often repairable, the economic loss is sustained by ports due to trade interruption during repair and reconstruction. Besides construction, ports also need to operate and align with government and regional development agendas. This course covers the requirement inside the port gate, from policy and strategy, to construction, operations, and maintenance.
