New SOLAS MSc programme

The newly developed structured research Master programme on Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate (MSC-OAC) will run in its 2nd round from September 2023. The programme bridges the boundaries between ocean and atmosphere and will provide students with a broad understanding of how the coupled system works, affects and is affected by climate and human activities.

The MSc is a collaborative effort between the global and interdisciplinary research project Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) and the University of Galway, Ireland. The course combines taught and research elements and is designed for students who want to develop careers in this vibrant, global, and multidisciplinary area. It involves an up to seven-month research placement in a world-leading partner organisation, participation in international workshops or summer schools, and working with renowned scientists in the respective areas. Owing relationships with major stakeholders, these placements offer students an opportunity to develop the necessary skills to continue with a PhD, work in the marine renewable energy sector, marine/atmosphere related industry settings, or nature conservancy.
