A system of basic doctoral studies (PhD) and doctoral studies (DSc) has been created in the specialties 11.00.03 - Land hydrology. Water resources. Hydrochemistry.

Graduates of the department work in the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Center for Hydrometeorological Service, the Ministry of agriculture, the State Committee on Ecology and Environmental Protection, the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan and industry research institutes.

The main courses of the department are geophysics,  atmospheric physics, synoptic meteorology, climatology, meteorological calculations, meteorological forecasts, agrometeorology.

Currently, the faculty of the department, together with the staff of the Hydrometeorological Research Institute, are carrying out a scientific grant on the topic Develop a system for monitoring changes in the mass balance of glaciers in the context of global climate change and technologies describing the future state of glaciers.
