Overview

This programme provides comprehensive training in understanding, modelling and prediction of atmospheric processes; as well as the collection, management, supply and application of atmospheric data for the needs of a variety of public and private sectors. The course also demonstrates how these create opportunities or pose problems for the successful operation of natural and human systems. Our aim is that upon graduation you will be able to compete for careers in Meteorology and Climatology.

This well-established programme was developed in response to industry and research institution requirements for applied meteorologists and climatologists. This demand continues, partially due to the growing attention of the society to climate change, its mitigation and adaptation to it.

Career

The Applied Meteorology and Climatology programme from University of Birmingham was initiated in 1963/64. It was developed in response to industry and research institution requirements for applied meteorologists and climatologists. This demand still continues. For example, over the period of the last decade, about 45 percent of graduates from the course have entered employment directly related to applied meteorology and climatology, while 37 percent have taken up research posts in this area.

Examples of the destinations of our graduates are the UK Met Office; MeteoGroup (London); Weathernews UK Ltd (Aberdeen and Japan); The Weather Services International (Birmingham); Vaisala TMI (Birmingham); and PhD studies in various universities including Cambridge, University of East Anglia, Edinburgh, Swansea, Leicester, UMIST and the University of British Columbia in Canada.
