Study and Teaching | Meteorology at KIT

KIT will start its studies on April 20. The "lecture period" also starts on April 20 (as planned in the long term). For the time being, however, only digital courses will be offered. (as of April 7, 2020)

Current schedule (as of 15.04.2020)

Semester Opening Bachelor Meteorology: Monday, April 20th, 1:30 p.m. via Zoom! Please register in ILIAS to attend the meeting!

Semester Opening Master Meteorology: Monday, April 20th, 11:30 a.m. via Zoom! Please register in ILIAS to attend the meeting!

Dear students,

At this point in time, it is foreseeable due to the corona containment measures that the lectures cannot take place in classroom operation from 20.04.2020. The expert group Online Teaching is currently working on creating the technical prerequisites with reliable, scalable solutions in order to open up digital teaching scenarios as alternatives to the complete discontinuation of courses. The plan is to stick to the study plan as far as possible. You can find more information on ILIAS.

Please use the learning platform ILIAS to register for the corresponding courses. Joining is not possible with a password, but only with the permission of the lecturer. ILIAS serves as a central information point for students. Ideally the courses should be online by April 9th at the latest.

As soon as there are news, they will be published here.

Stay healthy!

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In the course of the Bologna process, the diploma degree course "Meteorology" has been replaced by two new degree programs, the Bachelor's degree program and the Master's degree program.The Bachelor's degree program has been offered in Karlsruhe since the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