Institute for Meteorology


Meteorological research in Leipzig can be traced back almost five centuries. The Leipzig Institute of Meteorology maintains this tradition and is now a recognised national centre for meteorological research and teaching.


With about 15-20 graduates per year, Leipzig is one of the largest German institutes offering a full Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Meteorology. The special feature is the strong connection between teaching and research.


The research at the Leipzig university has a long tradition and goes back to the 19th century. Today, about 70 scientists are working at the Leipzig institute of meteorology. Organized in six professorships, we investigate versatile processes which are related to atmospheric changes.
