Climate and Meteorology is a discipline concerned with the study of atmosphere phenomena and focusing on climate processes, precipitation, temperature, currents, and electric discharge. It also aims at forecasting these phenomena and the changes or sequence between them. The activity in this field involves the research of climatology in terms of probing, analysing, evaluating and interpreting the meteorological data with the purpose of forecasting the weather and specific climatic conditions in the different geographical areas of the world. It is also preoccupied with the development of new meteorological theories and the improvement of existing ones, with the improvement of meteorological methods, techniques and instruments.
As a meteorologist you can practice your profession in government agencies, private consulting and research services, utilities and radio and television stations. A career in meteorological research can prove to be a very exciting endeavour as it can take the practitioner in some of the most unexplored and unknown places on Earth.
The M.Sc. ICSS program offers courses in all fields of climate system sciences. At present, the program allows the specialization in one of following three tracks: › physics of the climate system; › biogeochemistry of the climate system; › climate related economics and social sciences. All courses are held in English. Class size is limited to 20 students. Our research oriented study program has been accredited by ASIIN in 2010. Professional perspectives Become a climate expert! After graduation our students successfully work as researchers in the fields of natural, social and economic sciences, consultants in the public service and private business sectors, and in non-governmental organizations, or pursue a PhD.
The two-year MSc in Science for Sustainable Development is an interdisciplinary masters programme comprising both theoretical and empirical studies in natural sciences, technology and social sciences. The focus is on the global environment and socio-technological issues such as climate change or the availability of water and energy. Our aim is to help guide their development towards socially appropriate ends.
The MSc Climate Studies is targeted to students who wish to focus on the scientific insights in facing climate change and on social economic implications of climate change.
Would you like to gain a deeper understanding of the physical world around you? Would you like to use mankind’s largest instruments, for example the particle accelerator at CERN or the telescopes at the European Southern Observatory? Would you like to do advanced simulations of the earth’s atmosphere and interior? The Master Programme in Physics provides you with tools to understand the inner workings of the world.
Earth, Life and Climate is an interdisciplinary programme combining biology, (geo)chemistry and earth sciences.
Climate-related research is highly relevant for society, scientifically interesting and challenging. Human-induced global climate change has grown into a sense of urgency over the last decades.

Der Studiengang Klima- und Umweltwissenschaften an der Universität Augsburg vermittelt zum einen fortgeschrittene Kenntnisse fachwissenschaftlicher und methodischer Art im Bereich der Klimaforschung und bietet zum anderen ein spezifisches Spektrum an Wahlpflichtmodulen aus dem Bereich der Umweltwissenschaften an, wobei drei der vier angebotenen Disziplinen nach individueller Schwerpunktsetzung auszuwählen und zu belegen sind. Das Spektrum umfasst Themenbereiche, die eng mit der Akzentuierung Klimaforschung verbunden sind und hervorgehobene Bedeutsamkeit im Kontext der Klimafolgenforschung besitzen. Als besonderes Merkmal ist die substanzielle Einbindung außeruniversitärer Forschungseinrichtungen in das Qualifizierungskonzept zu erwähnen, wodurch die Anbindung an spezifische Forschungsfronten und potenzielle Beschäftigungsperspektiven gezielte Verstärkung erfährt.
The MSc in Climate Sciences is a specialised master programme and is part of the Graduate School of Climate Sciences of the University of Bern. The curriculum consists of 120 ECTS, of which 8 ECTS are compulsory courses, 52 ECTS are elective courses at the University of Bern and ETH Zurich, and 60 ECTS are reserved for the master thesis. A broad and interdisciplinary range is covered with the elective courses, including lectures, exercises, practicals and excursions.
This MSc should give you the skills needed to develop computer based models and to be able to extract useful information from them. It will be particularly valuable for those wanting to go either into industrial research and development employment.

The programme is intended for those who wish to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the study of how the environment functions, and how it interacts with humanity and human society. Three specializations are possible: natural environmental science (bio-geo-chemical cycles, natural resources and biodiversity); climate and energy; globalization, urbanism and governance
