Careers in Meteorology

The thorough grounding in meteorology and climate science offered by the M.Sc. course will enable graduates to pursue careers in national meteorological and environmental agencies and in various branches of the private sector (e.g. broadcast and aviation meteorology, the insurance industry). It is also an excellent starting point for those aiming at a Ph.D. and a research career within a university or specialised research institution.
