Organisation Profile

The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences educates the next generation of top-level atmospheric scientists and experts with all the necessary multidisciplinary skills to tackle the future challenges of climate change, air quality matters and environmental technologies. The supra disciplinary education will enable those experts to serve at different challenging positions in society and industry. Beside classical curriculum skills and knowledge, the education on the state-of-the-art measurement technologies (laboratory, ground-based and remote sensing), data-analysis and modelling (from box models to Earth system models) are emphasized.
