The Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading is part of the School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences.
Our diverse community of staff and students is united by a passion to explore how mathematical, physical and computational sciences can be used to better predict the weather and climate.
You'll find a strong sense of community within the Department of Meteorology. Staff and students get to know one another thanks to our excellent staff-to-student ratio.
Our departmental coffee room, which sits at the heart of the Department, is a place where everyone can share their passion for tackling the challenges of the natural world in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
