Study and Teaching

Welcome to the Study Section of the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research

Invitation to the student Christmas party!

As every year, the students of the 5th semester organize a Christmas party for all meteorology students. It will take place on Tuesday, 18.12. at 6 pm in Room 6/1. To help students plan better, you are asked to sign up for the following doodle link:



Current Issues:

  • The lecture Middle Atmosphere in the Climate System will not be held regularly every Tuesday, but in several small block events on Wednesdays from 09:30 - 15:00.

              The next appointments are 19.12., 9.1, 16.1, und 6.2..

              For questions regarding dates or venue please contact Michael Höpfner or Miriam Sinnhuber.

  • You can find the current university calendar at the Campus Management for Students.

  • There is now an official film about studying meteorology at KIT! Visit YouTube to watch it! Thanks to all who participated! (as of 23.03.2017)

Schedules & lecture announcements:

  • The schedule for the winter semester 2018/19 can be downloaded here (as of 22. October 2018).

Our programs:

The BSc and MSc programs in Meteorology at KIT stand out by their close link to research, topicality and thematically breadth. As the number 1 institution for Atmospheric Science in Germany (Shanghai Ranking 2018), KIT can offer an extraordinarily rich spectrum of dissertations, practicals, student research assistantships and participations in field campaigns worldwide. Our graduates find attractive positions in research, industry and in the German Weather Service.


In addition to information for prospective students, you will find extensive information about the Bachelor's degree program and Master's program "Meteorology" as well as the possibility of a PhD at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT):


B.Sc Meteorology

In the course of the Bologna process, the diploma degree course "Meteorology" has been replaced by two new degree programs, the Bachelor's degree program and the Master's degree program.The Bachelor's degree program has been offered in Karlsruhe since the winter semester of 2008/09. In the course of a survey on satisfaction with their studies, in 2015 the surveyed students rated the bachelor's degree in meteorology with an overall grade of 1.69 (30% very good, 70% good), almost half a mark better than the KIT average ,


M.Sc. Meteorology

The master's program Meteorology is also offered since the winter semester 2008/09. It is a consecutive degree program and builds on the bachelor's degree in meteorology. However, it is also possible to enroll graduates of other science-related / geoscientific-oriented Bachelor's degree programs or with a degree recognized as equivalent (see entry requirements). Upon successful completion of the Master's program, the degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) will be awarded.
