Hi, Mr. Ashutosh,

To become a Climatologist or Meteorologist in India is a matter of higher study. That means you have to study Post graduation courses to become a Meteorologist or Climatologist in India. The course of Climatology comes under the aegis of Atmospheric Science.


- How to study Climatology or Meteorology in India:


In order to study Climatology as specialized subject at graduation level a student must have a strong mathematical background. The subjects required are Mathematics, Physics and statistics. An engineering graduate too can study Climatology. So ISC Arts is not the right choice for those who intend to pursue a career in Climatology later. One has to study Physics, Chemistry and mathematics in ISC and than a B.Sc in a mathematically oriented subject will help you focus in a career as a Climatologist or Meteorologist.


- Scope of Meteorology in India:


In India a Climatologist will not have to struggle for a bright career. The job description of a meteorologist job is basically to study and predict weather and climate.

In India due to variations in climate patterns at different places, extreme weather and agro-based economy the need of a Meteorologist can be easily felt. Climatology has huge impact in Architecture as well, because Nature has great effect on building of houses, and other structures. So building Climatology is very much important as a career choice.

So private Architectural farms too require Climatologist.
  8. Jobs in State and Central Agricultural Universities.
  9. Indian Council of Agricultural Research
