About

Physics - Meteorology at Uppsala University is the specialisation for those of you who want to get deep understanding of the weather and climate systems. We also offer courses in numerical modelling of the atmosphere and practical meteorology, a hands-on course in forecast methodology.

Overview

Physics - Meteorology at Uppsala University lets you apply your background in physics on the atmosphere. You will study different aspects of meteorology such as atmospheric dynamics, thermodynamics, climate variations and climate change. You will learn meteorology on both local and global scale and gain skills in applied meteorology e.g. wind-power calculations and dispersion of pollutants. 

Career

With a Master's degree in physics, you will be qualified for PhD studies in physics. Many physics Master's students continue as PhD students, at Uppsala University or elsewhere. You will also have the opportunity to work with research and development (R&D) at various companies and public authorities.

Our graduates work at, for example, the Swedish Meteorological Office (SMHI), Wind power companies and universities (domestic and abroad). Job titles include operational forecaster, consultant and PhD-students/researcher.
