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.
This programme provides a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on environmental sustainability. It provides students with a solid foundation in the physical science of climate change, climate change impacts, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, as well as in broader debates on sustainability.
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.
This 1-year course is designed to prepare graduates in the physical sciences and mathematics for research careers in Climate, Atmospheric or Environmental Sciences. It is ideally bridging the gap between undergraduate studies in physics, chemistry, mathematics and environmental sciences and study for a PhD.
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.
The postgraduate course ENERGY & CLIMATE is designed to acquire the competences to understand the state-of-the-art on energy & climate issues and the ongoing debate of policies and regulations.
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.

This master is designed for those who are keen to understand the major effects generated by climatic factors, living beings, oceans and atmosphere with regard to climate changes.
Climate is an overarching theme of this programme. The processes that affect and shape the climate are research focuses for the Department of Meteorology, whose teachers are active scientists who frequently participate in the public debate on climate change.
