About

The Master in Meteorology and Geophysics , impatido by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid , within the branch of knowledge of Sciences, encompasses the fundamental objective of studying the Earth (in its solid, liquid and gaseous parts) from the point of view of physics.

The Universidad Complutense de Madrid been teaching these disciplines in its classrooms since the 19th century, consolidating its leadership. At this time, it offers students the possibility of specializing in these fields with an updated and innovative study plan. This Master is academic and investigative, but also, companies and institutions in the field of Meteorology and Geophysics can find highly trained personnel in these fields in these graduates.

The Master has a strong vocation to serve society, where specialists in meteorological, seismic, volcanic risks, etc. are needed. that they can intervene in an emergency of this type. On the other hand, it is essential to have a good scientific background to tackle problems of enormous socio-economic relevance, such as the exploration of natural resources, energy (fossil and renewable) and environmental issues (including climate change). The demand for qualified professionals in Meteorology and Geophysics covers various aspects of the public sector (state or regional meteorological and geophysical institutes, universities and public research centers) and the private sector (companies in which aspects related to meteorological forecasting are highly considered: energy renewable, weather and climate prediction, or companies related to geophysical exploration, natural risk assessment, environmental consulting, etc). Likewise, the Master constitutes the formative stage of every student who wishes to develop Doctorate studies in the field of Meteorology and Geophysics.
