In honour of Professor Andrew Bradbury’s contribution to coastal engineering across
the SCOPAC region, a £500 bursary will be awarded annually to a University of Southampton
“Engineering in the Coastal Environment” student.
Professor Bradbury was keen to develop those new to the industry and taught on the
master’s course. Those students wishing to apply for the bursary will be expected
to undertake research of benefit to SCOPAC, on the coastline between Lyme Regis,
Dorset and Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex. A list of potential thesis topics will be
published, although research ideas from students are welcome and will be assessed
on whether at least one of the following criteria is met. Does the project:
Have a wider benefit to SCOPAC practitioners?
Develop a scientific tool that assists coastal decision making?
Advance the understanding of coastal processes?
Relate to coastal engineering or coastal management?
Assist in developing best practice?
Any University of Southampton ECE student interested in applying for the bursary
should produce a 300 word summary of why they should be considered for the bursary
and what the project will deliver for SCOPAC.
