Astronomy and Instrumentation (MSc)

Programme structure

The Astronomy and Instrumentation courses go beyond astronomy and space applications to enable you to use your knowledge and skills in adjacent areas of science and technology, including the development of instrumentation for environmental and medical applications.

Programme outline

The Astronomy and Instrumentation master’s curriculum consists of one year course work, and two significantly different research projects supervised by different staff members. The First Research Project will typically start early in the first year. You conduct your Master’s Research Project concluded by the master’s thesis during the second year.  Courses and research projects run simultaneously. This way, you can directly apply your experience and knowledge from research in courses and vice versa.
