Goal of the programme
Society urgently needs experts with a multidisciplinary education in atmospheric and Earth System sciences. Climate change and issues of air quality and extreme weather are matters of global concern, but which are inadequately understood from the scientific point of view. Not only must further research be done, but industry and business also need environmental specialists with a strong background in natural sciences. As new regulations and European Union directives are adopted in practice, people with knowledge of recent scientific research are required.
Upon graduating from the Programme you will have competence in
- Applying experimental, computational and statistical methods to obtain and analyse atmospheric and environmental data
- Knowledge applicable to solving global challenges such as climate change, air pollution, deforestation and issues related to water resources and eutrophication
- Making systematic and innovative use of investigation or experimentation to discover new knowledge
- Reporting results in a clear and logical manner
The master's programme in Atmospheric Sciences is offered by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Agruculture and Forestry.
