Study and Teaching

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

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.

Current Issues:

  • Our students made their decision:
    The best course (experimental Physics) in the Faculty for Physics in summer semester 2018 is the bachelor's course "Introduction to Synoptics", held together by Prof. Dr. Andreas Fink and Dr. Patrick Ludwig. Congratulations! (31 July 2018)

  • The schedule for the winter semester 2018/19 can be downloaded here (as of 17 July 2018).
