  • Can you get into processes interior of the Earth, on the Earth's surface, and in the atmosphere?
  • Are you interested in climate, extreme meteorological events, and observation systems?
  • Would you like to know how the interior of the Earth is explored, how sun, planets, and moons interact?
  • Do you want to be made familiar with the most recent techniques of Earth exploration and modeling of the system Earth and the adjacent planets?

Then the study of Earth and Climate Physics with a focus on geophysics or meteorology at the University of Cologne is just the thing! University of Cologne is the only university within Germany that offers these two subjects in combination.

Take some time and have a closer look at the following sites. If questions arise, contact us by email or make an appointment with our student advisory service.

Educating future meteorologists: Cloud and Precipitation Exploration Laboratory (CPEX-LAB) is a competence center of the Geoverbund ABC/J. Here, scientists from the Aachen-Bonn-Cologne-Jülich region conduct joint research on clouds and precipitation processes. CPEX-LAB contents contributes directly into the study programs Geophysics and Meteorology an at the University of Cologne and Meteorology und Geophysics at the University of Bonn.
