Survey for SOLAS Master of Science programme

The National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) in partnership with SOLAS is exploring offering a new Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate. We would be grateful for your feedback on your interest in participating postgraduate study (as either a student or a supervisor) in Sustainability and Climate through NUIG.

The survey should only take ~5 minutes to complete and will be closed on Friday, August 20, 2021. We look forward to hearing your feedback! For any questions, please feel free to contact the SOLAS IPO

MSc Programme

The new fee-based MSc course bridges the boundaries between ocean and atmosphere and provides graduates with a broad understanding of how this coupled system works, affects and is affected by climate and human activities. It combines both, taught and research elements, and an international exchange component to do a research project. The course is designed for students who want to develop careers in this vibrant, global, and multidisciplinary area.

It is expected that graduates of the MSc program will demonstrate understanding of fundamentals of oceanography and atmospheric science, but more importantly the interactions between the two also the Climate. This would include Physical, Biological and/or Chemical Oceanography, Atmospheric Chemistry and/or Physics, and Air-Sea Gas Exchange. Students will master laboratory, theoretical, and/or computational techniques necessary to contribute to knowledge in the research area, acquire environmental policy skills required for an emerging coastal and offshore renewable energy sector, have ability to conduct an independent research project, demonstrate ability to communicate concepts and results to expert and non-expert audiences and demonstrate science-teaching skills.
