About this course

The Bachelor of Science Advanced Honours (Atmospheric Science) degree is for high-achieving students interested in a challenging program leading to a career in scientific research. The UOW Honours website provides lots of useful information regarding research opportunities, scholarships, and application procedures.

Progress in atmospheric science relies heavily on the analysis of data produced by satellite-borne and other types of instruments designed by physicists. Atmospheric scientists need a broad scientific basis as well as experience in computing. With the growing field of climate science and increasing demand for tools and instruments to predict and monitor the environment, atmospheric scientists use their broad range of skills to contribute toward innovations in design and prototyping of instruments, and the analysis and interpretation of data.

What you will study
The Bachelor of Science Advanced Honours (Atmospheric Science) requires completion of subjects in physics, mathematics, chemistry, earth and environmental science and statistics. You will also study specialist subjects in remote sensing and the physics of atmospheric processes. You will participate in various enrichment activities and develop a close association with an appropriate member of one of the Faculty’s research teams.

This degree will suit students who possess both an aptitude for physics and mathematics alongside a broad interest in science.

The University of Wollongong collaborates widely with Australian and international atmospheric science communities including other universities, CSIRO, ANSTO, the Bureau of Meteorology, federal and state government departments and international networks.
