The Master of Science programme in Environmental Meteorology (LM-75) is jointly offered by the University of Trento (Italy) and the University of Innsbruck (Austria) and aims at building highly qualified graduates who will be able to exploit their skills and qualifications at international level in:
- the understanding of processes controlling the environment and its modifications, including those connected with climate change
- the development, dissemination and implementation of measures, techniques and tools in support of environmental resource management
- rising the citizens’ awareness of environmental issues.
Graduates in Environmental Meteorology will obtain two distinct degrees and will be enabled to prepare and present weather forecasts, perform atmospheric and environmental measurements, analyse observational data and work with numerical models for the simulation of atmosphere, climate and environmental processes.
Attending the Master, students are stimulated to get familiar with different ways of approaching weather, climate and the environment, through:
- classroom lessons and practical laboratory learning, covering a variety of topics related to atmosphere and climate processes and their connections with environmental systems
- meetings, conferences and seminars with experts on weather, climate, environment and other related subjects from all over the world
- visits to meteorological offices, environmental agencies, observational infrastructures research institutions and international organisations .
As part of these opportunities, every year a Festival of Meteorology (“Festival meteorologia”) is held in Rovereto (Province of Trento), and includes conferences, meetings, and demonstrations for students, schools and citizens.
