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In the course of the Bologna process, the diploma degree course "Meteorology" has been replaced by two new degree programs, the Bachelor's degree program and the Master's degree program.The Bachelor's degree program has been offered in Karlsruhe since the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.
