Masters in Climate Studies & Meteorology

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.

A programme that is unique in French-speaking Belgium ! Oceans cover almost 3/4 of the planet's surface. They form an essential part of the climatic system because like the winds they help redistribute heat, transporting energy from tropical regions toward the poles.Ocean currents like the Gulf Stream account for about half of the thermal transport from the Equator to the poles, and the atmosphere accounts for the same proportion.
