The Department of Atmospheric Sciences within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois is interested in working with industry partners on a wide range of opportunities. Atmospheric Sciences is the home of leading scientists and award-winning lecturers that will help students along their educational journey. As one of the nation’s top public research universities, we have extensive resources, enabling our students to learn the skills needed within the weather and climate risk areas. We are using those resources to expand that reach with the Online Master’s and Certificate programs in Weather and Climate Risk and Data Analytics.
Most students in this program are non-traditional students already working in a professional role within the atmospheric sciences field. These students are looking to advance to a higher level within an organization as well as add to their skillset in the highly technical field that is ever-changing. Collaboration and interaction with other professionals are often noted by online students as a highly desired aspect of pursuing an advanced degree.
