Meteorology and Oceanography with a year in Industry

Study the atmosphere and oceans and how their interactions shape our understanding of the weather, the climate and their variability. You will spend approximately one third of your degree studying mathematical techniques and gaining the skills needed to analyse and model the atmosphere and oceans. These transferable skills will be invaluable in your future career. Field work options allow you to investigate ocean processes in shelf seas and track balloons to determine local airflow. You will undertake a final-year independent research project on a topic that matches your interests. Improve your graduate prospects with an additional year in industry. You will spend your third year acquiring valuable work experience in your chosen field before returning to UEA for your final year. You will put what you have learned into practice, transforming theory into reality. You will also gain first-hand knowledge of your chosen field and generate crucial employer contacts to prepare you for a competitive job market. When securing your placement, you will benefit from our well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond. In recent years our students have worked for small, mid-size and multinational enterprises in a diverse range of fields, including environmental consultancies, weather forecasting services, and governmental (local and national) and non-governmental organisations, including volcano observatories, geological surveys and conservation groups.
