Portrait

The environmental physics program focusses on understanding the complex relationships between atmosphere, hydrosphere (ocean), cryosphere (ice region), solid earth (land) and climate. Special emphasis is placed on gaining experience in the application of state-of-the-art experimental methods , numerical data analysis using supercomputers and data interpretation via latest models.

DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The environmental physics program focusses on understanding the complex relationships between atmosphere, hydrosphere (ocean), cryosphere (ice region), solid earth (land) and climate. Special emphasis is placed on gaining experience in the application of state-of-the-art experimental methods , numerical data analysis using supercomputers and data interpretation via latest models.

Two of the leading research institutes in this field in Germany, the Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP) and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz-Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), co-lead the teaching and development of the program.

The syllabus provides the physical, mathematical and chemical principles, which are used in current research undertaken by the participating institutes. The students gain the skills and problem-solving capabilities for subsequent use in experimental design and project development of relevance for a subsequent career in research, industry or the service sector.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Graduates of our Master Programme qualify for …

  • conducting research at universities, research centres or authorities
  • worldwide employment opportunities in agencies/companies dealing with climate, weather or energy related topics
  • working in the energy sector or in the aviation and space industry (remote sensing and Earth observation in particular)
  • working in relevant government departments, governmental or non-governmental organizations

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admission to doctoral studies.
