Coasts, Oceans, Ports & Rivers Institute

Coasts, Oceans, Ports & Rivers Institute

Created in 2000, the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute (COPRI) is a semi-autonomous institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the country’s oldest national engineering society. COPRI’s services are designed to complement ASCE’s traditional civil engineering base, and attract non-engineering allied professionals who seek to enhance their professional and technical development.

COPRI serves its membership and society by uniting the disciplines working to sustainably develop, protect and restore coasts, oceans, ports, waterways, rivers and wetlands; integrating the key stakeholders into decision-making processes; advancing technological state of art and practice; and influencing public policy. COPRI’s hosted sessions are part of the week-long program that also includes interdisciplinary sessions of interest in geotechnical, construction, and architectural engineering relating to the engineering concentrations of COPRI.

Don’t forget about those Professional Development Hours. Receive up to 5 PDHs when attending COPRI sessions.
