Physics, Astronomy and Meteorology
This programme provides an introduction to the laws of physics and how those laws can be used to explore processes from everyday life as well as more exotic phenomena that most people are not even aware of. Mathematical modelling is essential in the study, but numerical methods on computers are becoming more and more important.
These methods enable students to handle more realistic and exciting problems than before. The program is divided into three disciplines:
• Meteorology and Oceanography
The first three semesters are identical for all three disciplines, afterwards the student chooses a major within one of them. Different forms of teaching are used, including lectures, laboratory work, programming, and study groups, and project work.
In this programme you will meet scientists who are involved in two Centres of Excellence and a number of other international and national research programmes. In addition our studies have received several awards for their excellent learning environment.
Additional admission criteria:
In addition to the regular admission requirements, courses in this section require that the applicant can document previous studies in mathematics as well as physics, or chemistry, or biology – at the upper secondary school or university level. Documentation must be submitted together with the application and will be individually evaluated. If the academic level of your subjects is not evident from the documentation, please include specific information on the courses.
