The goal of the Meteorology programme of Eötvös Loránd University is to extend the knowledge of BSc level students, and to learn about different meteorological phenomena, their driving forces, and to gain knowledge on the state-of-the-art methodology that is used in the practice and also about climate change and its environmental consequences. Students have to learn about the multidisciplinary nature of meteorology and the possible connections with different other scientific fields and sectors.
Applicants should have deep motivation and ability to learn about the theory of weather forecast and climate modelling, and they should be able to apply their knowledge in the practice. Applicants should be able to understand the different spatial scales that are associated with the variety of meteorological phenomena.
Strength of program
The Meteorology MSc program offers high level of theoretical meteorology courses as well as diverse courses on applications. Students are encouraged to participate in the research projects of the professors, where they can learn the latest research methods and acquire experience in teamwork. Students who spend extra work on a subject lead by their professors can participate in a national scientific competition among students from all universities. In addition to the faculty members, lead researchers of the Hungarian Meteorological Service, the Meteorology Division of the Hungarian Military, and the Meteorological Service of the Liszt Ferenc International Airport also offer thesis supervision. This helps the students find the most appealing topic for their thesis lead by the most appropriate expert.
The Hungarian Meteorological Service, the Hungarian Military and the private meteorological sector are major employers of our graduates. Furthermore, a large number of graduates continue their research as PhD students at various universities in Europe.
The degree enables the students to understand and forecast weather events, to be able to use and visualize results of climate and weather forecast models, and to assess model results and measurements of related fields to meteorology.
