Career opportunities

Programme graduates are distinguished by their versatility – the master programme provides a systematic knowledge of natural sciences creating thereby a broad and solid basis for lifelong learning. They can work in different research and development institutions, companies and services whose main activities are related to physics, mathematics, oceanography and/or meteorology or continue the studies in PhD level.

Specialty of Physics and Mathematics

The graduates of the program have skills sought for in various professions, such as engineers or project managers in high-tech startup companies or well-established companies in the field of energy, nanotechnology, material sciences, data mining, measuring laboratories, applied mathematics, quantitative finance etc. Graduated students can also work in research projects related to physics and mathematics.

Specialty of Oceanography and Meteorology

The need for researchers and engineers with the knowledge of atmospheric and ocean physics together with skills of modern methods of monitoring and modelling has substantially increased. The sphere of potential applications is vast involving fields of climate change, meteorology, oceanography, space sciences. The researchers and engineers are needed in governmental institutions like national weather service, naval administration or environmental ministry or ministry of transportation, research institutes and universities, and nowadays increasingly in private sector, as well. International cooperation in atmospheric and oceanic sciences has been instrumental in the success and advances of these knowledge areas. International cooperation organizations e.g. World Meteorological Organization and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or intergovernmental institutions e.g. European Centre of Medium Range Weather Forecasting, European Space Agency or EUMETSAT are truly interesting and forefront job opportunities
