O que eu aprenderei?

If you are fascinated by storms and tornadoes, then studying MMet Meteorology and Climate with a year in Oklahoma will be the perfect chance to study severe weather systems up close.Meteorology is a vital tool for tackling the biggest issues facing the planet today, including ozone depletion and climate change. This course is accredited by the Royal Meteorological Society and leads to a masters-level qualification. It is ideal for someone who is considering a career in climate or meteorological research.The first two years are identical to the BSc Meteorology and Climate course and will cover all aspects of meteorology and climate, including atmospheric science and oceanography. Teaching is divided between lectures and practical work, but the ratio depends on options selected. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to carry out a range of experiments using our extensive fluid dynamics and instrument labs, and atmospheric observatory.You will then spend your third year at the University of Oklahoma. The modules during this part of the course will be geared towards the weather of the US High Plains regions and the methods used to observe and forecast it.During your final year you will carry out an independent research project and can choose from an extended range of options at masters level. Many of our excellent teaching staff are world leaders in their fields and a number are Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) authors and Fellows of the Royal Society. We also have a Regius Professor of Meteorology and Climate Science. The University is one of only 19 institutes in the UK to have been awarded one of these prestigious positions by Her Majesty the Queen. Whichever research topic you pick, you can be sure of getting expert advice.This course is approved by the Royal Meteorological Society as appropriate academic training for meteorologists seeking the qualifications of Chartered Meteorologist (CMet) or Registered Meteorologist (RMet).Our degree programmes are also accredited by the British Computer Society – the Chartered Institute for IT.**Placement**The department benefits from a specialist placement officer and strong links with industry.
