Graduates in Environmental Meteorology at the University of Innsbruck have acquired advanced knowledge and methodological skills in the area of meteorology/atmospheric sciences in general, and in particular aspects in relation to environmental topics (e.g., dispersion of air pollutants, atmospheric chemistry, hydrology, agricultural and forest meteorology, energy meteorology).


The Master in Environmental Meteorology at the University of Innsbruck also prepares for a further scientific career. Graduates can critically evaluate scientific and engineering approaches and advance certain areas within Environmental Meteorology.They can communicate their knowledge and results from their work to a wide range of audiences. They can critically evaluate results of their own work and those of others in their field and have sufficient knowledge of related disciplines (e.g. chemistry, statistics) to - if necessary - call in and understand experts in these fields.

Studying at both an Austrian and Italian university in English leads to the development of a heightened sensitivity and accompanying skills to deal with cultural and socio-economic aspects of scientific or technological solutions.

Career opportunities

The Master Environmental Meteorology qualifies graduates to work, for example, in the public administration (e.g., environmental office and corresponding public institutions), meteorological services, the private sector (e.g., energy demand and predictions for hydro, wind and solar power, agriculture, forestry, hydrology) and other related areas where aspects of environmental meteorology are relevant.
