About this program
Atmospheric Science and Technology
LMAST is a Master of Science (MSc) degree in the Physics class (LM-17), organized as an international inter-university programme, jointly proposed by the Sapienza University of Rome and University of L’Aquila. The unique feature of LMAST programme is to educate master students with solid knowledge and specific skills in the domain of atmospheric science from a physics and an engineering perspective. LMAST includes fundamentals of fluid mechanics, meteorology, electromagnetics and statistical mechanics as well as satellite Earth observation, radar meteorology, atmospheric remote sensing, dynamical meteorology and climatic modelling, environmental meteorology and monitoring. LMAST emphasizes system-related and interdisciplinary aspects aiming at forming experts in the fields of research, educational, professional and industrial careers. The LMAST graduate can obtain the Statement of learning curriculum conformity to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Recommendation BIP-M 1083.
Candidates, wishing to apply to LMAST, are required to have a Bachelor degree and curriculum background with the following requirements: BSc in Physics or a degree in a technical-scientific subject with a list of exams showing a strong background in mathematics (calculus, algebra, analysis, numerics) and physics (classical and modern) as well as in chemistry and computer programming.
Minimum GPA: 76/100
