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 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 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.
Human activity is changing the natural environment at an unprecedented rate. As a result humanity faces a range of complex and interrelated challenges: global warming, ecosystem disruption, biodiversity loss, and, for many, increasing difficulty in meeting basic human needs for energy, food, water and shelter.
This postgraduate certificate is designed for those with a passion for tackling climate change and who require the flexibility that online learning provides. The programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy (GESA).
This program will emphasize environmental policy and management theory and practice on the global scale. Environmental change, sustainable practices, disaster planning and response, and political influence will be studied, providing students with insights into the status of shared resources throughout the world.
Are you interested in improving your professional knowledge in urban and environmental issues? This Master's Degree Programme at Lahti University of Applied Sciences provides our students with skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of modern urban planning, and with an opportunity to work in various demanding positions dealing with environmental issues.
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.
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 Clean and Renewable Energy Master is distinguished by the “label Master ParisTech” which selects Master programmes taught by ParisTech Grandes Ecoles and their academic partners that respond to criteria of high quality educational and scientific objectives and relevant employability.
Training experts to meet the challenges of global climate change. The MSc in Carbon Management at Edinburgh is recognised by eduniversal as one of the Top 100 Best Masters Programmes in the world!
This MSc offers advanced coverage of the physical processes governing the behaviour of volcanoes. The programme is taught by leading scientists working at the cutting edge of research into volcanoes, and will provide you with a strong background for independent research to PhD level or for a career in industry, public sector or NGOs.
