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.
Climate Change Impacts and Sustainability - This is a multi-school, interdisciplinary programme that explores the likely impacts of global climate change on society and the wider environment and to instil the skills to develop creative and evidenced solutions.
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 Technology and Safety in the High North programme focus on the technical and safety related challenges associated with industrial activities in the High North. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations in the harsh and vulnerable Arctic environment. The students are introduced to methods and tools for managing advanced, complex and integrated technical systems with respect to operation and maintenance, reliability and production assurance, health, safety & environmental risk as well as emergency preparedness.

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.
Climate Change, Impacts, Mitigation and Adaptation (CCIMA) is a 2-year interdisciplinary MSc programme, combining natural and social science approaches to the study of climate change, its causes and effects, how we can deal with it and adapt to it.
The Atmospheric Science Programme offers a modern education for students with interest in human activity linked to physical- and chemical properties of the atmospheric system.
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.
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.
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 Master in Atmospheric and Climate Science (MScAC) is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of atmospheric processes and their interactions – ranging in scale from the molecular to the global and from short-lived phenomena to changes over millions of years.
