This Applied Meteorology and Climatology programme from University of Birmingham also demonstrates how these create opportunities or pose problems for the successful operation of natural and human systems. The 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.
The MSc course in Applied Meteorology and Climatology 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, University of Central London, Leicester, UMIST and the University of British Columbia in Canada.
