CLIMATE CHANGE PROGRAMME

Institute of Climate Change (IPI)

PROGRAM SUMMARY

Institute of Climate Change (IPI) offers a Master of Science and Phd program in the multidisciplinary fields among the four research institutions, namely Climate Change Research Institute (Institut Kajian Perubahan Iklim), Space Science Centre (ANGKASA), Earth Observation Centre (EOC) and Centre for Tropical Climate Change System (IKLIM). By studying climate change, you can master the tools needed to understand the climate change system and mitigate its impact on economics and ecosystem. Studying space science provides a focus on the solar-terrestrial interactions (e.g., magnetic reconnections, solar flare, geomagnetic storm, and ionospheric storm), and the tools required for forecasting the space weather and for the earthquake precursor. Our research programs have strong collaborations with government agencies as well as international and local institutions.
