Atmospheric science(ATMS) involves the study of Earth's atmosphere, its processes, dynamics and interaction with other systems and other atmospheric coupling processes. The School focuses mainly on some fundamentals in Atmospheric science (ATMS), Remote sensing, Aeronomy, and Climate science as well as their respective processes, dynamics and interaction with other atmospheric coupling processes.

The 40 participants had classes on radio communication physics, applied geophysics, aeronomy, space weather and cloud phyiscs. Trainign sessions were delivered on python programming, MATLAB for Aeronomy and space weather, and the group tpp a tour to the University Planetorium.

Finally a careers and opportunities session was held with Q&A. The students were highly impacted and motivated, one said 'I am elated for attending the workshop. I was impacted positively and I hope pursue a career in Communication and Radio Physics'.
