Texas A&M University is gearing up for what will be the 52nd TAMU Annual Dredging Engineering Short Course.


This 4.5 day Dredging Short Course, which attracts a wide range of audience from state, local and federal governments, consultants, contractors, and academic researchers, focuses on dredging, dredge technology, sediment transport, placement options and site design, construction aspects, claims avoidance and a whole range of related topics.

Some of the topics to be discussed at the event include: current information on dredging fundamentals, dredge equipment & instrumentation, dredging procedures, dredged material placement procedures, sediment transport in pipes, environmental regulations, mathematical/numerical models, cost estimating, dredging and remediation of contaminated sediments, wetlands development, dredging case studies, topics in surveying, cost estimating, engineering with nature and beneficial uses of dredged material.


  • The 52nd dredging engineering short course will be taught virtually using Zoom software due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All time zones are U.S. Central.
  • The course includes a mixture of lectures, virtual laboratory exercises, and a panel.
  • This virtual course is administered by the Center for Dredging Studies, Department of Ocean Engineering, with organizational assistance from the Texas Engineering Experiment Station.
