The Ph.D. (Meteorology) Program aims to provide students with advanced graduate education in meteorology that will prepare them for the top-level scientific carrers in goverments, academic and research institutions. The Program envisions to produce highly qualified meteorlogists capable of pursuing independent research in various fields of specialization in meteorology.
Admission into the Ph.D. (Meteorology) Program requires a Bachelor of Science or an M.S. (Meteorology or Physical Oceanography) degree from a recognized institution of higher learning. Applicants must have strong background in physics and mathematics and must possess a very high degree of intellectual capacity and aptitude for advanced study and research. Other admission requirements are listed in the college of Science.Guidelines for Graduate Programs:
