The Institute of Atmospheric Physics is responsible for the graduate programs in atmospheric sciences. The Institute has both the master and the Ph.D. programs. Students in each program are enrolled separately through entrance exam of master or Ph.D. programs. For students studying toward the master degree, the goal of the Institute is to build up their research ability and to equip them with advanced knowledge and research tools in atmospheric sciences. Therefore, they are required to take at least 24 credits of advanced courses in atmospheric sciences. Furthermore, each student must complete, under the supervision of one of the institute’s faculty members, a master thesis in his/her special field. As for students toward the Ph.D. degree, developing their independent research ability is of primary concern. Therefore, Ph.D. students are only required to take 18 credits of courses but are required to, under the supervision of one or several Institute’s faculty members, conduct an original research in their interested fields.
